Movieguide® previously reported on the upcoming documentary:

A trailer for a new Johnny Cash documentary reveals the country legend’s musical talent, as well as the importance of his Christian faith.

JOHNNY CASH: THE REDEMPTION OF AN AMERICAN ICON makes use of over a 100 previously unheard tapes that were initially for Cash’s biography. The movie focuses on the time around the release of the 1971 album Man in Black, as well as Cash’s struggle with addiction and the influence of his faith. 

”Johnny Cash is an American icon who undoubtedly shaped the musical landscape. Behind the fame is the true story of a man who was haunted by his own inner demons, and through facing them, ultimately found an unshakable faith in God,” said producer Jon Erwin in a statement about the documentary. “At Kingdom Story Company, we strive to bring inspiring true stories to screen. JOHNNY CASH: THE REDEMPTION OF AN AMERICAN ICON is one such story.”

Kingdom Story Company is the studio behind movies like I STILL BELIEVE, AMERICAN UNDERDOG, and the upcoming JESUS REVOLUTION. 

In a trailer for the documentary, Cash can be heard discussing his relationship with God. 

“There’s no lonelier place on earth for a man to be than separated from God,” Cash explains

When asked if he has any regrets about his past, Cash says, “I forgave myself. When God forgave me, I figured I better do it, too.”

The trailer also includes interviews with the country singer’s sister Joanne Cash Yates, his son John Carter Cash, Wynonna Judd, Jimmie Allen, Alice Cooper, Greg Laurie, Sheryl Crow and Tim McGraw.

JOHNNY CASH: THE REDEMPTION OF AN AMERICAN ICON will be available to watch in theaters December 5-7.
