Playin’ Possum: My Memories of George Jones, a new book due out in September, offers readers an intimate look at country legend George Jones through the eyes of Nancy, his wife of thirty years.
The book explores the force behind the country legend—a strong, feisty woman who not only saved his life from cocaine addiction, alcoholism and other self-destructive behaviors, but also was instrumental in saving his soul. Married for more than thirty years to the country star, Nancy knew George better than anyone else on earth—the good and the bad, the horrendous and the hilarious.
For the first time, in Playin’ Possum, Nancy reveals the true insider perspectives and little-known poignant as well as humorous stories about the country music legend, his battles with cocaine, alcohol, abusive behavior toward her and others, and his battles against the demons that sought to control him and ultimately destroy him. Nancy knew there was a good man inside George, and she felt strongly that God had given her the assignment to help him, even if he hurt her.
The new book will be published by Forefront Books on Sept. 12, which is George’s birthday.
