Anyone else counting down the days until June drops on Paramount Plus?

On January 16th, a documentary focusing in on June Carter Cash will become available for country music fans, and the film promises to deliver never before seen moments and interviews with one of the most important women in country music history.

Interviews from Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Reese Witherspoon (who played Carter in 2005’s I Walk The Line), Kacey Musgraves, Larry Gatlin, Ronnie Dunn, and Robert Duvall will all be included, and it will be fascinating to see the details and anecdotes they have to share about five time Grammy award winner.

There’s plenty of history that the film will have to sort through, from June carrying on the Carter family legacy, to meeting and falling in love with the legendary Johnny Cash.

Just that powerhouse relationship alone will be enough to carry the documentary, and the trailer gives an interesting teaser for that portion of the film. At one point in the nearly two minute long preview, June Carter describes the first moment that her and Johnny met, saying:

“I was backstage and this big tall guy stops me and said ‘Hello, I’m Johnny Cash.'”

And that’s probably all that it took…

Following that soundbite, a portion of an interview with Willie Nelson plays where the “Red Headed Stranger” is talking about how you have to be tough to be married to Johnny Cash, and others can be heard saying that June Carter Cash and “The Man in Black” were the perfect match.

It’ll be great to get an entire production focused on a woman who meant so much to the world of country music. June Carter Cash, who died in 2003 at the age of 73, is certainly deserving of a full length documentary, and June looks like it will deliver.
