Listen to George Jones on iHeartRadio

George Jones' story is being put in print.  Songwriter Earl "Peanutt" Montgomery and his wife Charlene are sharing their memories of the late country great in the upcoming book The Legend of George Jones.

A release from the publisher says the Montgomerys drew on their own experiences with Jones to compile a collection of stories that "set the record straight," and "document the real heart and soul of George Jones." 

In the book they shed new light on a number of incidents and issues from the storied singer's life, including the time George tried to kill Peanutt. 

The book, has received approval from all four of Jones' children, comes with a 12-track CD including two previously unreleased George Jones songs.  

The Legend of George Jones will be in stores on April 15th.
