She is the woman behind legendary country music artist George Jones. Now, Nancy Jones is giving us an intimate look into her husband's life through the lens of their more than 30 years of marriage in her new memoir, Playin' Possum: My Memories of George Jones . Millions of people know the name of the iconic country singer. Yet few people know that behind the man and his golden voice was a strong, feisty woman who not only saved his life from cocaine addiction, alcoholism, and other abusive and self-destructive behaviors but also was instrumental in saving his soul. Nancy doesn't shy away from telling his full story...the good and the ugly. We sat down with her and book editor and New York Times best-selling author Ken Abraham to learn about the true life of Jones, including her favorite song of his, the biggest misconceptions about the country legend, how Nancy helped him overcome addiction, her favorite memories with him, and how her own near-death experience finally led her to write the book. This is a LifeMinute with Nancy Jones.
