George Jones and Tammy Wynette’s tumultuous love story is explored in the new miniseries George & Tammy, premiering on Showtime on Saturday (Dec. 4).
Jessica Chastain stars as Wynette and Michael Shannon as Jones in the limited series, which is based on the book, The Three of Us: Growing Up With Tammy and George.
The lovebirds first met at a Nashville recording studio in 1968 and wed the following year. They went on to welcome a daughter before divorcing in 1975.
“Stand By Your Man,” Wynette’s breakout hit, was released the year she met Jones. Audiences will get to hear Chastain and Shannon sing the former couple’s songs in the series.
“I had so much anxiety and stress about trying to sound like her, but that’s an impossible thing to do,” the Oscar-winning actress shared in a recent interview with Billboard. “She had a once-in-a-lifetime gift.”
