A must see for all Tammy Wynette and George Jones Fans
23 January 2011 | by venusdarSee all my reviews

I watched this movie for the first time a few months ago, and was blown away by the talent of both the stars who played Tammy and George, and although it shows the breakup of Tammy and George, it also shows how he struggled with alcoholism, and yet he loved her very much, and yet could not stop drinking. It held my attention throughout the whole movie from her first marriage til the end of her second marriage, and even though her and George could not keep their marriage together, it showed that she still respected his talent.I loved the music and the passion both these stars showed in this movie, and would love to be able to get my hands on this on DVD. It brought back a lot of memories for me of my sister,she was a devoted country and western music fan and I remembered these songs from hearing her play them. May she RIP.
