Most have heard the story of Johnny Cash, but how many know the Carter Family story, how it began and how the Cashes and Carters intertwined?
The Winding Stream tells the story of the Carter family… The struggles, their start and journey in country music, leading to a life-long legacy with the marriage of Johnny and June.
Eager for the screening of this film, and having watched it, I believe Johnny Cash fans who want the whole story should see it. Note… It’s NOT a film all about Johnny Cash. If that’s what you’re hoping too see, you’ll be slightly disappointed.
I must admit, this film educated me quite a bit on the foundation of country music, and the impact the Carter family had in regards to its growth. They were instrumental in building what is now known, as real country music.
