Item description for The Gospel Music of Johnny Cash by Johnny Cash...
Overview Johnny Cash captured the hearts of millions and enriched the history of American music with his larger-than-life persona. ?The Man in Black? was drawn to people who had become prisoners of their own choices. These were people with whom he could identify, as his own battles with addiction and heartbreak were no secret. Eleven Grammy awards, Hall of Fame inductions, hit songs, television appearances and millions of devoted fans around the world could not bring Johnny peace and, for that reason, the life story of this cultural icon cannot be fully told without investigating the lifelong spiritual quest of Johnny Cash. This 90-minute musical documentary takes you into the deep places of his heart where he would ultimately find joy and fulfillment when he had tried everything else. Out of his authentic faith came a love for gospel music through which he would further impact his generation with songs of hope. This never-before-told spiritual odyssey of Johnny Cash features vintage footage, family photos, interviews, 15 musical performances and the rare opportunity to follow Johnny on his journey to the Holy Land.

Wow, this item lays it out for us to see, the up and down struggle that we all endure, and that Cash endured, trying to serve the Lord while living with the day to day struggles of life, and the deep desire to be right with God.

Insightfull look into the real Johnny Cash Dec 21, 2008
I bought this DVD after watching the program on PBS. I've grown up with Johnny Cash, I'm 78, and this DVD is a good summary of all the things I think you would like to know about him. The story and the music are both good.
Touching Documentary on Johnny Cash Dec 20, 2008
Although Johnny Cash was never my favorite singer, I have always liked the spirit and sincerity of his music, especially since I was able to meet him briefly in 1990, when he was still healthy and in very good voice. This video brings to life Johnny's spiritual side, from his earliest years, through his many struggles that persisted throughout his career, and to his last days that brought a resurgence of his popularity. His knowledge of the Bible and his certainty of God's constant love and forgiveness continually brought him back to his roots. This video contains documentary footage that is touching, inspiring, and encouraging. In fact, when my wife and I first viewed it, we determined to buy extra copies as gifts for family members. I highly recommend it as one to enjoy viewing many times over.
The Gospel Music of Johnny Cash "Faith & Redemption" Sep 23, 2008
This is a very good documentary of Johnny Cash's life, including his struggles between good and evil, stuggles with his personal life, struggles with his family life, his career, health problems, and etc. This shows how his strong faith in GOD got him throught these struggles. The documentary is narrated by Dan Rather. This Dvd also highlights the Gospel Music of Johnny Cash.
It starts by describing his humble beginnings as a child being raised on a farm in the rural Arkansas delta. It progresses into his service to the country in the military. While he was stationed in Germany, he bought a guitar and learned to play and sing. He had met his first wife by this time and when he was honorably discharged, the two married and moved to Memphis. He auditioned for Sam Phillips at Sun Records by playing gospel songs, but Sam said he would not record any gospel songs. So, Johnny began recording early rollabilly songs and became a star. The early touring took a toll on Johnny and he resorted to drugs to cope. This took a toll on his first marriage and it ended.
Johnny hit bottom and was disfunctional for about a year, then he got involved with June Carter and mother Maybelle Carter. June was a true helpmate and helped him get his life back together. They married and his career became sucessful again. Sam Phillips lets him record some gospel songs and he performs "I Was there when it happened".
The Dvd shows some footage of Johnny, June and his band performing some gospel songs at San Quinton. Some of these include: "He turned the water into Wine", "Daddy sang bass", and "Man in Black" (he wrote this song for all the down-trodden people in the world).
The dvd documents John and Junes trips to the "Holy Land", and their filming of a movie about the life of Christ,in the "Holy Land". Some more great gospel song performances from Johnny include: "Over the Next Hill We'll be Home", "Peace in the Valley", "Why me Lord", "The Old Rugged Cross", and "I'm Just an old Chunk of Coal". These are performed at a Billy Graham Crusade. Johnny gives great testimony of his faith and devotion to Jesus Christ.
Tragedy strikes Johnnny again,as he is attacked by a large male Ostrich, at his farm in Tennesee. Some of his ribs are broken, and his stomach is torn open. He recovers but gets addicted to pain pills. He goes into the Betty Ford clinic and recovers. He rejoins Billy Graham at a Crusade, and gives great testimony again. He also performs some more great gospel songs including "One of these days I'm gonna sit down and talk to Paul"(this is and outstanding song written and performed by Johnny,).
Johnny and June go back to the "Holy Land", and he performs "I won't have to cross Jordan alone". They reappear back on a Billy Graham Crusade where they perform "What on earth will you do for Heaven's sake", and "the old account was settled long ago". Again, Johnny gives great testimony of his Christian Faith.
The documentary draws to a close and discusses Johnny's last few years alive, the death of his wife of 35 years June Carter Cash, and Johnny's worsening health problems. He is interviewed by Larry King and is asked if he is bitter, because of his bad health, and Johnny replys "No, I don't have any reason to be bitter", "I've had a great life". It ends by covering Johnny's last recordings and his death. This dvd is a great "Story of Faith and Redemption".
