A drama following the birth of rock 'n roll during the civil rights movement.
Set in Memphis, Tennessee during the volatile early days of the civil rights movement, young musicians like Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash are guided by Sam Phillips as they combine country music with 1950s rhythm and blues to create a sound that forever changed the course of music.
As a result of this new sound, these young artists experienced a jarring and sudden rise to fame in the face of sweeping political change and social unrest.

I think this show is great. There is some quirkiness but most of the actors do a great job. It does show how bad Col. Parker was. Do wish we could hear more of the music that I grew up with.

Too slow in presenting content. The actress playing Marion is not frumpy enough. Look at the pics online. Actor playing Jerry Lee Lewis is too short. Chad Michael Murray is great. Looks like a young Glen Campbell.

this was my most favorite show on t.v. only reason I was on cmt, this is who I grew up with hope the show returns for another season.

Ive been reading probably cancelled. CMT claims it was only set for a limited run. They never got around to starting Cash, Jerry Lee. If it were only a limited run why wasnt set for tv movie.

This is a wonderful look at an important time in the evolution of music in America. Acting is terrific. Humor supplied by Jerry Lee Lewis and cousin Jimmy spot on. The rise of Elvis and rock and roll has really captured the attention of my 18 year old grandson. He is listening to the music now. We are spending time together watching the show. This show will catch on with the younger generation who missed these wonderful music legends. Please renew and invest in
educating kids who didn't live through this wonderful time in America.

This show is excellent, factual and very entertaining. CMT has nailed this show right to a "T". The actors are right on.

I can barely tolerate the fake southern accent that the actor uses who plays Sam Phillips. I never heard the real Sam Phillips speak, but it couldn't have been this horrendous.
