    Given Campbell’s life experience, one might expect a little more edge or emotion from a song like this. He seems untouched by it all. Except his face…

    Johnny Cash is without a doubt one of the most important musical icons in American history.

    There’s a new documentary airing on the Bio Channel on 10/23, called “Johnny Cash’s America,” and it examines Cash’s life, music, and influence on 20th century American history.

    It’s already premiered at the Woodstock Film Festival. Commentary from the likes of Al Gore, Bob Dylan, Snoop Dogg, and Merle Haggard should make this one great!
