Tammy Wynette Tragic Country Queen,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Tammy Wynette: Tragic Country Queen (Hardcover)
I loved this book! At first, I didn't, to begin with it was a little slow, the author spends a lot of time on each person in Tammy's life that played a major part in her stardom. I did not understand why so much was spent time on these people when the book is about Tammy Wynette but as I read more of the book I understood "WHY" he went into such great detail. It was important that each person's personality and background was revealed in order to understand the impact they had on her life.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE TAMMY WYNETTE always have and always will. I never knew the all of the turmoils she went thru in her life, I knew a lot of about her early years but next to nothing about her later years. This book told me this and showed me her life w/George Richey and the hell she went thru livig with this man.
The author of this book was very careful to document all information printed, he referenced each statment at bottom of each page and noted when he was unable to confirm a story or not.
To summerize, What an eye opener this book was, and if you go see the movie Country Strong, this movies so closly resembles Tammy Wynette's life toward the end, read the book and see the movie, you will see
