Overview


George Jones lived a storied life, but his career was not without controversies. This book reveals fascinating, intimate details about the life of George Jones that have never before been published. Charlene and Peanutt Montgomery, who were George’s closest friends and confidants over a thirty-year period and the songwriters for the vast majority of the songs that George recorded, are the authors of this highly entertaining book.
