(WREG-TV) “The Legend of George Jones” is a collection of stories spanning many decades, five marriages and a marvelous career unequaled in the genre of Country Music.
From humble beginnings playing the guitar and singing on the streets of Beaumont, Texas, George Jones became one of the most important and influential singers in music history.
He was the voice behind many of Country music’s most enduring hits, such as “White Lightning,” “She Thinks I Still Care,” “Walk Through This World With Me,” “The Door,” “I Was Country When Country Wasn’t Cool” and “He Stopped Loving Her Today,” which is widely regarded as one of the greatest country music singles of all time.
With “The Legend of George Jones,” Charlene and Peanutt wanted to set the record straight.
Throughout Jones’ life, the tabloids chronicled his struggle with personal demons and often painted a less-than-flattering picture.
Throughout the book, Charlene and Peanutt tell it like it is and make no excuses, but they document the real heart and soul of George Jones.
