>BECOMING JUNE CARTER CASH
You transformed for this role, with dark hair and prosthetic teeth!
I didn’t want people just looking at me going, “Is that Jewel wearing a wig?” And that meant wearing the prosthetic dentures. My snaggle[tooth] is so identifiably me.
What kind of reaction did your husband, rodeo cowboy Ty Murray, have?
He was real supportive. One of the reasons I took the role was because I was able to do it as a mom when Kase was 9 months old. When the baby saw me for the first time in the wig, with those blue eyes, it was like he thought I was in a mask.
Any recent milestones for Kase?
On the [tour] bus I have a shower back there with a little training potty in it. Nothing like potty training on the road. It’s been hilarious, actually.
Do you and Ty think more kids are on the horizon?
I’m torn. I feel like I have one handled. Two is a whole new thing. But they say you have your first kid for you and your second kid for your first kid. So we’ll see if that compels me or not!
