Jimmy Carter Rock and Roll President


Official Trailer

The movie theaters in New York are still closed with no indication of re-opening.  Many movies have been released on the Internet.  The film Jimmy Carter Rock and Roll President shows his enthusiasm for what we now call classic rock.  He is the first U.S, President to openly embrace this genre of popular music. Years later Barack Obama showed his enthusiasm for popular music. The film shows his meeting with Bob Dylan, Crosby Stills, and Nash, Willie Nelson, the Allman Brothers, and Cher among others. Roseanne Cash and Paul Simon were interviewed in the movie. President Carter was also very much interested in jazz and classical music.

Jimmy Carter is now 96 years old and lived longer than any former U.S. President.  He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002.  Hopefully, his love for music will add to his legacy.  I highly recommend the movie for my readers who are music enthusiasts.

You can stream the film for $12.  It was certainly worth the price.
