Sneak Peek: Jewel as June Carter Cash in “Ring of Fire”

Jewel portrays June Carter Cash in Lifetime movie.

Jewel shines as the iconic country music legend June Carter Cash in an upcoming Lifetime movie. The singer spent a month in Atlanta shooting Ring of Fire, a film based on John Carter Cash's memoir about his mother.

“One of my favorite things was to get her accent and her voice," Jewel tells Country Weekly. "She had a really specific way of speaking and I like that. And it’s completely different than my speaking voice! Getting that down really helped me find the rest of her character.”

Ring of Fire will premiere on Lifetime, Monday, May 27, at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Check out a preview of the movie here.
