YouTube is now getting into the long-form game and they’ve just released a music documentary about Johnny Cash that you’ll definitely want to see if you’re a Country music or Americana fan. From what I’ve read so far, I think it’s a documentary that every music fan can get a lot out of, too.
Johnny Cash believed he was born to sing and perform. But his gift was not without hardship. Discover the true story of Johnny’s rise, fall, and rebirth from his own words as well as those closest to him.
The Gift: The Journey of Johnny Cash is two hours available for FREE streaming now, no subscription required, with subscribers to YouTube Premium getting some access to exclusive content and no advertising.
There is an official soundtrack to the documentary as well which was released on November 8th. The original score was done by Mike McCready, and the soundtrack incorporating exclusive interview soundbites with Johnny Cash, June Carter Cash, and others.
