From one of Nashville's most prominent wives and a top journalist comes a
revealing, intimate look inside the lives and marriages of major country music
Country music is celebrated for the honesty of its lyrics, and in this book
fifteen outspoken Nashville wives talk openly, for the first time, about life
with their famous and infamous husbands-how they met, fell in love, rose to
stardom, and coped with the pressures of show business success-and failure.
How did Garth Brooks's wife handle the public disclosure of his adultery?
Why is Kenny Rogers's bride optimistic about their marital future when she is the
sixth Mrs. Rogers? How did Mrs. Alan Jackson respond to the rumors of
her husband's romantic involvement with one of Nashville's foremost female
singers? Was it difficult for Mrs. Charley Pride to maintain an "all
is well" appearance when her husband was undergoing psychiatric treatment?
Also, the sixth Mrs. Merle Haggard confesses to her drug addiction; Mrs. Ronnie
Dunn of Brooks & Dunn talks exclusively about her husband's past violent
outbursts; Mrs. Billy Ray Cyrus discloses why she was forced to keep
her marriage secret from the public; Mrs. Glen Campbell recalls her husband's
conversion from cocaine to born-again Christianity; and more.
In Nashville Wives, Mrs. George (Nancy) Jones, wife of the most critically
acclaimed country vocalist who shares her own amazing story of Nashville secrets
and legends, and Tom Carter, author of several country music bestsellers, provide

the women behind them.
Mrs. George (Nancy) Jones has long been the doyenne of Nashville wives.
Tom Carter is a Nashville journalist who has collaborated on
