The book will delight Country fans with “insider” music business knowledge and engage the Christian reader with faith-filled asides. This very intimate outing makes the reader feel as if they are living this story – from the couple’s Arkansas raisings, to their first date, to the release of Jim Ed’s last album – and the life lived in between. Becky has enchanted viewers and listeners during her recent appearances, and fans are sure to enjoy her visit with O’Day on WSM.
Becky is one woman of the 1960s “stay at home” generation who chose to – genteelly – buck the trend and retain her independence. Throughout her life with Jim Ed, Becky modeled; worked as a professional makeup artist; painted; danced; taught dance and formed a renowned dance studio and troupe. While a supportive wife to her husband and loving mother of two well-rounded children, Becky lived life her way, never allowing herself to be relegated to the shadows of Jim Ed’s stardom.
