Overview

This is a story, a story of living with a gentle giant, a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather. He was kind, generous, and very slow to anger. This is a story about love, perseverance, and how love conquers all.

Becky Perry Brown was married for fifty-four years to country music legend, Jim Ed Brown, member of The Grand Ole Opry for over fifty years, and a member of The Country Music Hall of Fame. While he followed his dream, her dream was to be a professional dancer. She was a model, taught self-improvement and dance classes.

Eventually, she followed a dream and opened her own dance studio. For forty-six years, young people came and went through those doors, learning ballet, tap, and interpretive dance. They became a part of the story and Jim Ed and Becky were a part of theirs.

By writing this book, Becky has shared some of the good times, some of the bad times, some funny stories, some lessons learned, and set straight some rumors.

She had her doubts at times, but God has never failed her. His grace is sufficient always. He truly sent Jim Ed her way, and they had a wonderful journey.
