I had to record an album, which was the most challenging, horrifying experience of my life.” Reese also said that it was one of the difficult work to do for her as, she said, “It’s been so hard, it’s been really, really one of the hardest movies I’ve ever had to make.”

“June Carter Cash was destined to be a country music star. She was the daughter of Maybelle Carter, who revolutionized the way country music musicians played their guitars, and, later, the wife and better half of superstar Johnny Cash.”

He was very inspiring.”

Although Walk the Line gives them better recognition than previously, it but inspired thein initially. And Case state in that “She loves me in spite of everything, in spite of myself. She has saved my life more than once. She’s always been there with her love, and it has certainly made me forget the pain for a long time, many times.
