The Mad Life And Crazy Death of Tammy Wynette

Lucy O'Brien, Q, August 1999

Burt Reynolds nearly died in her bath, George Jones escaped on her lawn-mower, and her second husband traded pictures of her in the nuddy. She was drugged, beaten, burgled and riddled with disease. Then she died and her family has just dug her up. Lucy O'Brien wonders why there's no rest for country's queen.
