Bob Dylan says that when he met Governor Jimmy Carter, "the first thing he did was quote my songs back to me." He knew the lyrics inside out, and they began an enduring friendship. Not many years later, President Carter's old friend Willie Nelson smoked pot while visiting him in the White House. Those are just two of the many gleeful stories in Jimmy Carter Rock & Roll President.

The film's title sounds like an oxymoron. Many things might come to mind when you hear the name Jimmy Carter: President from 1977-1981, the time of the Iran hostage crisis; humanitarian and Nobel Peace Prize winner. Fan of and friend to scruffy, pot-smoking musicians is not on that list. But the documentary delivers on the promise of its title, with a fresh, buoyant look at the importance of music in the former president's personal and political life.  

Carter's involvement obviously brought many other musicians to the film. Dylan, Nelson and Gregg Allman are the most crucial, but there are plenty of others who share memories, including Paul Simon, Roseanne Cash, Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks. Throughout, the film conveys how genuine Carter's love of music is.—The Hollywood Reporter
