Just in time for Father’s Day, Georgette Jones—the only child of country music’s “First Couple,” George Jones and Tammy Wynette—pens a memoir about life with her troubled parents and the journey back to a relationship with her estranged father.
The daughter of country music’s most famous couple, Georgette Jones is a pop culture princess who has become a successful recording artist in her own right. But as fascinating as this revelatory book will be to music fans, The Three of Us will also strike a chord with the millions who have endured the trauma of their parents’ divorce—the very experience that shaped Georgette’s life and that she writes about here with unforgettable candor.
George Jones’s autobiography, I Lived To Tell It All, was a New York Times bestseller. But it didn’t tell the entire story. Drawing on interviews with family and friends, Georgette’s memoir goes where her father’s didn’t, offering an in-depth look at Tammy Wynette as a mother and how her substance abuse and dependency on men forever shaped her daughter’s relationships and approach to drugs and alcohol. She also reflects on applying the lessons she learned from both of her parents to raising her own twin sons and offers a heartwarming account of how she rediscovered the connection with her father after years of pain, missed opportunities, and lost time.
Including a treasure trove of personal photographs that take readers back through one of the stormiest, most famous family histories of music stardom, this is a universal and inspiring personal journey.
