There can be no greater icon of American music than the gravel-voiced Johnny Cash. A man who spoke his mind and made his own way in life, Cash transformed himself from a poor sharecropper's son into a living legend and in the process he made some of the greatest American music ever. Living life to the fullest and experiencing both the highest of heights and the lowest of lows in his 71 years, he walked the line between saint and sinner, hero and villain, hellraiser and deeply religious Christian. He stood tall for the little man and forged his own path through the world of popular music in a way few others have. With three generations of the family Sime passing down a well-loved and worn collection of first-print Johnny Cash albums to their next of kin, the songs and struggles of this bigger-than-life man have provided influence and inspiration to at least one Isotope staff member since birth.
Years after his death Cash's life is being immortalized on the big screen and the trailer is now online. Check it out:
