Set those DVRs for the premier of the Lifetime original movie Ring of Fire starring Jewel. If the previews are any indication, she makes a perfect June Carter Cash.
Based on John Carter Cash’s narrative of his mother’s life, “Anchored in Love: An Intimate Portrait of June Carter Cash”, “Ring of Fire” delivers a heartfelt telling of the famous singer’s life, from her early beginnings in the rural mountains of Virginia to her turbulent, yet enduring, marriage to Johnny Cash (Matt Ross, “American Horror Story”, “Big Love”).
Told as only an insider could, “Ring of Fire” recounts June’s meteoric rise to fame with The Carter Family, considered the First Family of country music, before breaking out on her own to perform, when she would become a legend in her own right. Taking a personal look at June’s first two marriages, life with her daughters and touching relationship with her son, the movie showcases her infamous courtship with Cash and June’s heroic role in saving his life during his battles with substance abuse, as well as how her unwavering faith in God, confidence and talent has taught lessons to generations.
