Documentary.  Presented with the generous support of CKUA Radio! This presidential portrait shows how Jimmy Carter’s lifelong passion for music gave him an unexpected edge as a presidential candidate.  Through folk, soul, gospel, jazz and rock ‘n’ roll, Carter tapped into a force that transcended racial and generational divides, and often party lines.  Carter’s appreciation for all genres of music and friendships with the likes of Bob Dylan, the Allman Brothers, and Willie Nelson helped to define his campaign.

JIMMY CARTER ROCK & ROLL PRESIDENT combines intimate interviews with Carter along with rare archival era-defining live performances from: Willie Nelson, Aretha Franklin, Jimmy Buffett, and Paul Simon among others.  Also featuring: Madeleine Albright, Bono, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood.

Director Mary Wharton traces how Carter’s genuine approachability and the unifying power of music became key to his political appeal and allowed him to connect with voters who may only have known him as a small town peanut farmer.
