If it hadn't been for a bottle of scotch & a late-night visit from musician Gregg Allman, Jimmy Carter might never have been elected the 39th President of the United States. JIMMY CARTER, ROCK & ROLL PRESIDENT charts the forgotten story of how Carter, a lover of all types of music, forged a bond w/ musicians Willie Nelson, the Allman Brothers, Bob Dylan & others. Low on campaign funds & lacking in name recognition, Carter relied on support from artists to give him a crucial boost in the Democratic primaries. Once Carter was elected, musicians were frequent guests in the White House. The surprisingly significant role that music played throughout Carter's life & in his work becomes a thread in this engaging portrait of one of the most enigmatic Presidents in American history.
