Jimmy Carter: Rock & Roll President

Jimmy Carter, 1981

CNN Films announced Thursday that it has acquired North American broadcast rights to the documentary “Jimmy Carter: Rock & Roll President,” which focuses on the role popular music played when the former president ran for the White House.*

In other Carter news: Since its inception 46 years ago, Habitat for Humanity International has mostly been known for building homes for low-income families. 95-year-old Carter and wife Rosalynn are among its most famous current volunteers, building homes in more than a dozen countries. Carter was back at the hammer one day after he fell last year.

*In contrast, the current US President was recently issued a cease and desist order by the estate of Tom Petty, and there are lists of artists who do not want their music being used by his campaign.
