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. Their strong bonds with and admiration for George come shining through, even when writing about the less-than-flattering incidents and times that make up part of the story.
This book contains a CD album of 11 original and unreleased songs written by George Jones and Peanutt Montgomery, including the never before released title song, The Legend of George Jones, plus one bonus title, “Kerosene”. Peanutt wrote 73 songs for George Jones over more than 30 years, all of which were top 40 songs, with some reaching #1 hit status. Well-known country music artists along with rising country music artists destined to be big stars sing the songs on the CD album. The album becomes a bonus treat for the readers.
