By Joyce Gray Jackson
The reminiscences of a star-struck Kentucky girl, Joyce Gray, who moved to Nashville, immediately landing an assistant’s job behind-the-scenes with ill-fated country superstar Jim Reeves, whose songs include “Four Walls” and “He’ll Have To Go.” At age 40, Reeves died in a 1964 plane crash. Others touching Joyce’s life prove to be equally memorable characters, such as her guitar-whiz husband Leo Jackson, singers Dottie West, Johnny Tillotson, Willie Nelson and the Wilburn Brothers, plus industry figures like Mae Boren Axton (who wrote Elvis’ #1 “Heartbreak Hotel”) and Charlie Dick (the man behind Patsy Cline).
