Darius Rucker, one of country’s greats, has had his share of acting gigs. He has guest starred on CBS’s Hawaii Five-0 and CMT’s Still the King (as Jesus). He is returning to CMT on the show Sun Records as Johnny Bragg, a real-life singing prisoner.
Johnny Bragg was the lead singer of the Fifties vocal group, the Prisonaires, and was incarcerated for most of his life.
In the clip below previewing this episode (March 23), Bragg and the Prisonaires sing a cappella as they are led in shackles into the Sun studios. This show looks good. Will you be watching?
