In the first episode of True Grit, CMT will examine the life of an American who demonstrated the essence of "true grit," Ronald Reagan. This episode explores how Reagan overcame the most humble of beginnings in Dixon, Ill., to become a Hollywood actor, the Governor of California and ultimately win the most powerful office in the world. The saying "behind every strong man is a strong woman" is nowhere more accurate than in this American success story. The instrumental source of Reagan's inner-strength, his "true grit," came from his rock solid, storybook relationship with his wife, Nancy. From the very first frame of True Grit: Ronald Reagan, the music and narrative revolves around "Cowhide" and "Rainbow," the Secret Service monikers given to the President and Nancy Reagan, and the strength that classic love story gave the 40th President of the United States.
