It is an intimate portrait of an extraordinary woman and electrifying performer who traded gingham dresses early in her career for spiked heels and Bob Mackie costumes, and changed the look and culture of country music forever: A fairy tale life lived with great passion and inordinate hunger for self-fulfillment, all the while with an exceptionally generous heart.
