Music icon June Carter Cash is getting her turn in the spotlight with a new documentary titled June.
Directed by award-winner Kristen Vaurio, the documentary will include interviews with the brilliant icon herself alongside family and friends such as Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Reese Witherspoon, and more. The documentary will also use rare archival material revealing June’s remarkable life and work. Often overshadowed by her legendary husband, Johnny Cash, June will shine a well-deserved light on her accomplishments. Carter Cash was a five-time Grammy award-winning singer, comedian, musician, actor, and author. Opening for Elvis Presley and appearing onscreen with Robert Duvall and Jane Seymour are among her other amazing accomplishments. She was also co-writer of one of the most recognizable country songs ever, Ring of Fire.
John Carter Cash was quoted as saying, “I am thrilled to share the full story of my mother’s life with the world. Thank you to Sony Music Entertainment and Sandbox Productions for finding a place for it to live and to Paramount+ for giving it a home.”
Carlene Carter, June’s oldest daughter, was quoted as saying, “This film offers a great opportunity to realize that June was a star of television and music from an early age – decades before she became Mrs. Johnny Cash.”
June will premiere on Paramount+ January 16, 2024.
