In the first full-scale biography of the enduring first lady of country music, "New York Times"-bestselling biographer McDonough tells the story of the small-town girl whose meteoric rise led to a decades-long career full of tragedy and triumph.
From the Publisher:
From the New York Times bestselling biographer-the first book-length portrait of music legend Tammy Wynette. || Known for his acclaimed biographies of Neil Young, Russ Meyer, and Andy Milligan, Jimmy McDonough now delivers an emotional and revealing exploration of the life of the Queen of Heartbreak. Based on dozens of interviews, McDonough's book unveils a life of profound extremes, from Wynette's impoverished youth in Mississippi, to her meteoric rise after meeting legendary producer Billy Sherrill, to her star-crossed marriage to music legend George Jones. What emerges is an unforgettable view of a Nashville that no longer exists-and a woman whose life mirrored the sadness captured in her music.
Annotation:
In this heartfelt biography, Jimmy McDonough traces the tragic life of one of country music's biggest stars. Wynette was responsible for the enormous hit songs Stand By Your Man and Take Me to Your World, but her life was marked with addiction and illness and several failed marriages. McDonough offers an insightful look into her life, offering the perspective of her closest friends and family.

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
