Meet George Jones’ Wife, Nancy Sepulvado Jones

Country music icon George Jones was a talented artist with self-destructive tendencies, a serious drinking problem, and a nasty drug habit. With three failed marriages under his belt (Dorothy Bonvillion, Shirley Ann Corley, and fellow country star Tammy Wynette), the troubled star found his salvation when he met 34-year-old Nancy Sepulvado in 1981 and married her in 1983.

The straight-laced Nancy Sepulvado Jones righted his messy finances, helped him address his drinking, kept his drug dealers at bay, and helped revive his ailing music career. Jones had become famously unpredictable, often disappearing and failing to show up for recording sessions and concerts— earning him the nickname “No Show Jones.”
