Tammy Wynette's dramatic personal life -- fraught with five complicated marriages, nearly 30 serious operations, chronic addiction to painkillers and an unsolved kidnapping -- often threatened to overwhelm her career. But through it all, her talent overcame each obstacle. For more than 30 years, Wynette's music chronicled the classic themes of loneliness and the search for love. These were themes she knew and understood all too well. Her journey to fame included all the usual trappings of one who has achieved the pinnacle of success -- Grammys, three CMA awards for female vocalist, command performances for five Presidents and induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Wynette died in her sleep in 1998 at the age of 55. Her untimely death opened a debate that continues to this day, despite autopsy findings. Here, Wynette's family and friends reflect on the life and career of the country music legend. Interviews include Wynette's daughters Jackie Daly and Georgette Jones, former husbands George Jones and George Richey, as well as Shania Twain, Dolly Parton, Vince Gill, Trisha Yearwood, Lorrie Morgan and Sheryl Crow.
