(NASHVILLE, Tennessee) -- Heritage Builders Publishing is pleased to announce that The Legend of George Jones will be in stores everywhere on April 15, 2014. Nearly one year after the world said farewell to the Grammy Award-winning Country Music Hall of Fame and Grand Ole Opry member, Charlene and Earl “Peanutt” Montgomery remember their best friend of thirty years in this new, tell-all biography from Heritage Builders Publishing.

The Legend of George Jones is a collection of stories spanning many decades, five marriages and a marvelous career unequaled in the genre of Country Music. From humble beginnings playing the guitar and singing on the streets of Beaumont, Texas, George Jones became one of the most important and influential singers in music history. He was the voice behind many of Country music’s most enduring hits, such as “White Lightning,” “She Thinks I Still Care,” “Walk Through This World With Me,” “The Door,” “I Was Country When Country Wasn’t Cool” and “He Stopped Loving Her Today,” which is widely regarded as one of the greatest country music singles of all time.

With The Legend of George Jones, Charlene and Peanutt wanted to set the record straight. Throughout Jones’ life, the tabloids chronicled his struggle with personal demons and often painted a less-than-flattering picture. Throughout the book, Charlene and Peanutt tell it like it is and make no excuses, but they document the real heart and soul of George Jones.

Peanutt wrote seventy-three songs for George Jones including some of his best-loved number one hits. No other music star had a more faithful and loyal writer and musician with the talents of Peanutt Montgomery. Charlene, Peanutt’s wife and partner, is a prolific songwriter in her own right, and she had a personal relationship with Jones that spanned decades, and she remains today a revered and beloved friend of all the Jones children.

The book, which has been endorsed by all four of Jones’ children, contains many never-before-told stories about his life. Among the highlights:

*The attempted murder of Peanutt by George Jones
*The culprits who brought Jones to bankruptcy, and his knees, are revealed.
*Unexplained mysteries concerning Jones’ fifth wife Nancy, and the way that his children were treated at his funeral.

The book also includes a CD of nine popular Peanutt Montgomery/George Jones hits plus two previously unreleased songs, newly recorded by some of country music’s top players.
