Biography

Beginning his career as an outlaw to the Nashville establishment, Johnny Cash has come to define country music over the last 40 years. At first, his unique mix of hillbilly music with gospel and blues made him a perfect fit at Sam Phillips' Sun records, where he recorded such classics as "Folsom Prison Blues" and "I Walk The Line." From there, Johnny signed with ... Read more in Amazon's Johnny Cash Store

Editorial Reviews

Includes Bonus DVD. A newly commissioned film for A&E's Biography Channel, Johnny Cash's America blends biography, essay and music to explore the meaning of one American's life. Chapters develop thematically from Cash's life: his agricultural roots, finding his voice with the original rock and rollers, his commitment to family and selfeducation, his anger at the treatment of Native Americans, his refusal to let prisoners be forgotten, the folk scene as a platform, America's wars- his support and resistance, and his patriotism even when questioning the government. This deluxe CD/DVD package contains the film in its entirety plus a CD of the music from the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiration! October 29, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is a must have collection for Johnny Cash fans, this is a must have for anyone who enjoys music today.

The dvd/cd is based on the "I am a nation" speech recorded and found in Cash's personal archive. Everyone from urban eccentric artists to hard-working farmers appreciate JR Cash. This outstanding Biography illustrates that fact. Especially after witnessing the high praise from the likes of merle haggard and snoop dogg. The cd which accompanies the dvd biography is a soundtrack containing the highlighted songs.

This is an inspirational pickup for anyone who doubted there-own self worth. Or for those who appreciate a true American patriot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Johnny Cash biographical documentary DVD and CD November 11, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Morgan Neville and Robert Gordon's Johnny Cash documentary premiered on the U.S. Bio channel in late October, accompanied by this DVD/CD package, Johnny Cash's America. The DVD includes the full 90-minute documentary alongside several video extras. The CD collects eighteen full-length performances of songs heard in the documentary, five of which were previously unreleased. The core documentary strings together archival footage of Cash in performance, television specials and documentaries, supplemented by interviews with family and musical associates, authoritatively answering the questions posed by the film's narrator: "How did events shape Cash? And what did he reflect back on to the country? How can one speak his mind, without losing his voice?" Cash's story is told in chronological order, starting with the hardscrabble Arkansas roots at the very core of his character. Cash's earliest years are described by childhood friends and remembered by Cash in a filmed return to his first home.

Cash's recording career, from Sun Records to Columbia to his last works with Rick Rubin provide the soundtrack to a life that's both a product of America and an influence woven into the tapestry of the country he so vocally loved. Cash is shown as an artist who stuck resolutely to his vision, such as when he lampoons the notion he'd replace Elvis as the King departed to RCA. Clips of Cash communing with Bob Dylan in the studio recording Nashville Skyline and a roll call of non-Country artists featured on his primetime television show further demonstrate the breadth of his musical vision. As far as Cash managed to stretch the ears of his fans, he stretched their minds even further.

5.0 out of 5 stars Johnny Cash's America December 3, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is the story of one of the most talented people in America and depicts Johnny's impact on the American way of life. Proof that you can come from poverty to riches and not let it get in the way of your goals. I found this to be the best tribute to Johnny Cash to date. Normally I am not into country music but am a huge Johnny Cash fan and this will be my favorite and definitely a keeper.

5.0 out of 5 stars America's Johnny Cash January 3, 2009
By 2 cents
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A bunch of famous folks talk about what Johnny Cash means to them (Al Gore, Bob Dylan, Snoop Dogg, Sheryl Crow, John Mellencamp, Lamar Alexander, Rosanne Cash, Tim Robbins) and narration is by the great American actor Chris Cooper. We see lots of footage including performances, Cash's childhood home, and just all kinds of places that he went to and that meant something in his life. You'll probably get an even richer appreciation and better understanding of the man and his music after seeing this fine documentary. Nevermind that cliched Hollywood biopic, see a good documentary instead. Highly recommended.
