The Legend of George Jones Told By Those That Knew Him Best in New Book

Nearly one year after his death, Charlene and Peanutt Montgomery
remember their friend in this new tell-all biography from Heritage

(NASHVILLE, Tennessee) — Heritage Builders Publishing is pleased to announce that The Legend of George Jones
will be in stores everywhere on April 15, 2014. Nearly one year after
the world said farewell to the Grammy Award-winning Country Music Hall
of Fame and Grand Ole Opry member, Charlene and Earl “Peanutt”
Montgomery remember their best friend of thirty years in this new,
tell-all biography from Heritage Builders Publishing.

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.

Peanutt wrote seventy-three songs for George Jones including some of his
best-loved number one hits. No other music star had a more faithful and
loyal writer and musician with the talents of Peanutt Montgomery.
Charlene, Peanutt’s wife and partner, is a prolific songwriter in her
own right, and she had a personal relationship with Jones that spanned
decades, and she remains today a revered and beloved friend of all the
Jones children.

The book, which has been endorsed by all four of Jones’ children,
contains many never-before-told stories about his life. Among the

  • The attempted murder of Peanutt by George Jones
  • The culprits who brought Jones to bankruptcy, and his knees, are revealed.
  • Unexplained mysteries concerning Jones’ fifth wife Nancy, and the way that his children were treated at his funeral.

The book also includes a CD of nine popular Peanutt Montgomery/George
Jones hits plus two previously unreleased songs, newly recorded by some
of country music’s top players.
