New biography "Unconquered: The Saga of Cousins Jerry Lee Lewis, Jimmy Swaggart, and Mickey Gilley"(Brown Books Publishing Group) by J.D. Davis in Dallas, TX explores the personal and professional lives of three cousins inseparably bonded through music. Each rose to fame, their stories becoming legend.
Drawing from exhaustive research and personal connections with friends and family, Davis provides readers with an eye-opening look inside three personal journeys set alongside important landmarks in pop-culture history.
Davis introduces readers to the families of Jerry Lee Lewis, Jimmy Swaggart, and Mickey Gilley providing detailed information about each.
Born within a twelve-month in small-town Louisiana during the Great Depression, Davis recreates the irresistible and life-changing power of music that surrounded the cousins and shaped their engagingly distinct paths to fame.
"'Unconquered' clearly depicts the fasinating story of three great musical artists who were cousins in real life but icons in the world of music," says Tom Schedler, Louisiana Secretary of State.
From family ties to births, moonshine to early death, mothers and sons, first wives and first foray, Davis reveals the hardships they endured, the importance of music and religion and how each impacted their lives.
"Jerry Lee Lewis was right up there in popularity with Elvis during the very early days of rock and roll," says Sanford Brokaw, The Brokaw Company.
Brokaw further adds, "Jimmy Swaggart was for many years one of the top televangelists and spiritual leaders; and when Paramount Pictures released Urban Cowboy, Mickey Gilley emerged as one of the country music's biggest acts."
Was it something in the water? How could such a small town like Farriday, LA produce three cousins that would each play prominent role nationally?
Songwriter and recording studio pioneer Cowboy Jack Clement says, "'Unconquered' tells the fascinating story of three men growing up in the Mississippi Delta - and how they overcame hardships to become the amazingly talented men we know today."
Davis presents a unique tale of American music centered on the trials, tribulations, and achievements of three men who remain truly 'Unconquered...'
