"We invited 20th Century Fox to screen 'Walk the Line' at Folsom because the lesson of Johnny Cash is that it's never too late for a man to turn his life around, and that's a story these men need to hear," said Joe Avila, California executive director of the nonprofit Prison Fellowship.

As of Phoenix, he said "John believed in the power of redemption and offered his unique gift to anyone who needed to find it within them, and in the process, he inspired millions. I can think of no greater way to honor him than to carry on his legacy of using music to connect to all people."
