Praise

"Combining pop musicology and tabloid gossip, McDonough has crafted a fitting tribute to a country music icon." 12/14/2009

"Wynette's tortured history is forcefully told...." 12/01/2009

"Not surprisingly, the music is where McDonough, like Wynette, shines. Her voice was the ideal soundtrack for less polished times, when country was country, not pop with cowboy hats. The book is worth reading for the musical history alone, the sloppy authenticity of those early days a stark contrast to the deadening, Disney-fied Botox passing for Nashville music now." - Allison Glock 03/07/2010
