Publisher Description

Boozing.  Womanizing.  Brawling.  Singing.  For the last forty years George Jones has reigned as the country's king--the singer many have called the Frank Sinatra of country.  And for most of that time, his career has been marked by hard-living, hard-loving, and hard luck.  From his early east Texas recordings through his marriage with Tammy Wynette to his latest acclaim as a solid citizen and "high-tech red-neck," Americans have been fascinated with Jones, never even knowing whether he's going to show up for his next concert.

Now, in I Lived To Tell It All, George Jones supplies a no-holds-barred account of his excesses and ecstasies.  How alcohol ruled his life and performances.  How  violence marred many friendships and relationships.  How money was something to be made but never held on to.  And, finally, how the love of a good woman can ultimately change a man, redeem him, and save his life.

I lived to tell it all

George Jones at his best, telling it all on himself in the most humble and honest words that the world appreciates and has wanted to hear because we grew up with him, and will always love him for being the one and only "George Jones."

Honest story which makes this a wonderful book to read.

Good book, I'm glad I read it. I respect George Jones for his honestly and thank him for sharing his story.


I Lived To Tell It All

I grew up listening to old country, the good stuff, especially George.
I read this book while on deployment in the Marine Corps. It had me laughing and crying. Having heard all his songs and knowing his story, I was sorta prepared but I was not ready for some of it.
Great read.
