George Jones and wife Nancy

For most of his early life, George Jones was a gifted artist with a drinking problem and self-destructive bent, but there’s nothing like the love of a good woman to turn a guy around. “She saved my life,” the singer said of wife Nancy (nee Sepulvedo), whom he married in 1983.

The two met on a blind date in 1981, after the singer had been in three failed marriages. Their wedding ceremony, on March 4, 1983, took place at the home of Jones’ sister, Helen Scroggins, in Woodville, Texas, and the new bride and groom toasted their nuptials with a dinner at Burger King.
