Why I Made a Movie About Johnny Cash
I think we’ve all heard of Johnny Cash and can recognize his music—even today’s young people can. He had a musical style that was so unique and could transcend time, setting him apart from other musicians.

But there’s more to his story.
Saint or Sinner?
Johnny Cash wasn’t just known for creating unique music, but for being a unique individual as well.

He embodies the paradox of every Christian who wants to do what is right but struggles to do it, just like the apostle Paul described in Romans. That’s one reason I’ve wanted to tell his story for such a long time.

He writes that he has never seen anything quite like it before or since. “I felt such clarity and purpose coming out of that prayer time. That I was called to a generation of young adults to reach them for Christ and tell them about the power of the cross and the reality of the resurrection of Jesus.”
