Johnny Cash‘s music is featured in the trailer of the new movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man Tell No Tales, which was released during the Superbowl this year. The trailer used his song “Ain’t No Grave,” off the album American VI: Ain’t No Grave.
Not only was the country legend featured in the movie trailer, but he also made an appearance in a pre-Superbowl commercial with his spoken-word track, “Ragged Old Flag,” according to Taste of Country. The commercial revolved around important moments in U.S history, such as the civil rights marches in the 1960s.
Country music was very prominent in the 2017 Superbowl. Luke Bryan also made an appearance to sing “The Star Spangles Banner” before the game, which was a huge hit.
