Overview

George Jones has been called one of country music's greatest singers. Jones' voice "held the bracing power, the sweetness and the burn of an evening's final pull from a bourbon bottle," as Tennessean music columnist Peter Cooper writes so eloquently in this book. "George Jones: The King of Broken Hearts" examines Jones' legacy over six decades of a life that mirrored a country song - from his successful singing partnership and stormy marriage to fellow country music star Tammy Wynette, to his recklessness fueled by drugs and alcohol, to his redemption, spurred by the love and devotion of his fourth wife, Nancy. It also details Jones' honors - induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame, a Kennedy Center Honor and a Grammy for Lifetime Achievement. Featuring scores of exclusive images, The Tennessean tells the tale of this honey-tongued singer who captured hearts around the world.
