This is a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the creation of a bona-fide country music masterpiece. When George Jones (1931-2013) recorded "He Stopped Loving Her Today" more than 30 years ago, he was a walking disaster. Twin addictions to drugs and alcohol had him drinking Jim Beam by the case and snorting cocaine when he wasn't comatose. Before it was over, Jones would be bankrupt, homeless, and a confused occasional patient in a mental institution. In the midst of all this chaos, legendary producer Billy Sherrill - the man who discovered Tammy Wynette and co-wrote "Stand by Your Man" - would somehow coax the performance of a lifetime out of the mercurial Jones. The result was a country masterpiece. He Stopped Loving Her Today tells the remarkable story behind the making of the song often voted the best country song ever by both critics and fans.
