About this title


Jimmy Dean and his wife Donna chronicle his amazing rise-from backroad music gigs to playing The Grand Ole Opry to headlining Carnegie Hall and the London Palladium to the coast-to-coast smash of his own TV show to his Grammy Award-winning spot on the country charts to his investment in the Jimmy Dean Meat Company, which evolved into a phenomenal business success and American tradition.

This is also a candid and affectionate portrait of the legends who crossed Jimmy's path, including Patsy Cline, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra, Roy Rogers, Jack Benny, George Burns, Roy Clark, Sammy Davis, Jr., Jimmy Durante, Jim Henson, John F. Kennedy, Sean Connery, and even George Bush.

The Deans also share the incredible story of the multi-million-dollar business venture that made him a household name-and the "deal from hell" with the Sara Lee company that become one of the most challenging periods of Jimmy's life.

Brimming with good will, folksy humor, nuggets of wisdom, and down-home philosophy, this is a story of a life well-lived that will charm, enthrall, and surprise Jimmy Dean's legion of fans.

About the Author:

Jimmy Dean's first hit single sold close to one million copies, two additional singles went gold, and Big Bad John won Dean a Grammy Award. He also hosted the popular The Jimmy Dean Show on ABC, and in 1969, he and his brother, Don, opened the Jimmy Dean Meat Company, marketing their special "pure pork" sausage to the country.

Donna Meade Dean is a singer, songwriter, and former Mercury-Polygram recording artist. They live in Varina, Virginia.
