Abstract:

He is, in fact, two men running in opposite directions at the same time. One is George Jones, King of Country Music. The other one is the George Jones who drinks whiskey like water; shot at his best friend; and once destroyed his own home in a fit of drunken rage. Here, for the first time in paperback, is a biography of this latter-day Jekyll and Hyde. It's all here: his impoverished boyhood in Texas; the years on the honky-tonk circuit; his simultaneous rise to superstardom and descent into alcoholic hell. And at the heart of it all, his tumultuous marriage to the Queen of Country, Tammy Wynette.
