George Jones in Country Weekly

George Jones, one year later. Remembering the legend from tributes to memorials. Take a look at the June 9th 2014 issue of Country Weekly.

When George Jones died in April of 2013 at age 81, the words of tribute came from artists in all fields of music. And more than a year after his passing, George is still the subject of fond remembrances and praise.

A new book by husband-and-wife songwriters Charlene and Earl Montgomery, The Legend of George Jones, offers a complete look at George, recalling his often-violent temper as well as his soft charitable side. Charlene and Earl, also known as “Peanutt,” wrote several of George’s best-known hits. Charlene spoke to Country Weekly about the book, which the couple started writig about five years ago.

“I knew the good side of George and I just wanted to share with the world that George was a good-hearted, compassionate man,” Charlene says. “He was a common man who wanted to live a regular life.” written by: Country Weekly
