GEORGE & TAMMY chronicles the country music power couple, Tammy Wynette and George Jones, whose complicated-but-enduring relationship inspired some of the most iconic music of all time. Remembered as the “First Lady of Country Music,” Wynette’s most successful song “Stand by Your Man” remains one of the most iconic and best-selling country singles by a female artist. Known for his once-in-a-lifetime voice, George Jones’ song “He Stopped Loving Her Today,” is still widely called the greatest country song of all time. With over 30 number-one country songs between them, including duets “We’re Gonna Hold On,” “Golden Ring” and “Near You,” George and Tammy’s legacy, both musically and romantically, remains one of the greatest love stories ever told.

David Mansfield is an award-winning film and television composer. His first film score was for the controversial epic Heaven’s Gate. It led to a four-film collaboration with director Michael Cimino, and a Golden Globe nomination for Year Of The Dragon. Other long-standing relationships include Mexican auteur Arturo Ripstein, and Maggie Greenwald (Ballad of Little Jo, Songcatcher). His score for Ripstein’s Deep Crimson won Best Musical Score at both the Venice and Havana Film Festivals. David’s score for the A&E mini-series Broken Trail (directed by Walter Hill) was nominated for an Emmy. His most recent score is for the Showtime limited series, George & Tammy, starring Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain.
Mansfield also has composed for scripted podcasts, including Audible’s The Big Lie starring Jon Hamm and created by John Mankiewicz. He is a world-renowned musician, who came to national attention at age 19 as part of Bob Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue. He subsequently formed The Alpha Band with fellow Dylan alumni T Bone Burnett and Steven Soles. He was featured in the Martin Scorsese film Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story and was a part of Dylan’s 1978 world tour which resulted in two albums, Live At Budokan and Street Legal.
In the 1980s David was one of the founding members of Bruce Hornsby and The Range, receiving an RIAA platinum album and a Grammy for “The Way It Is”. His credits read like a veritable who’s who of popular music, from the late Johnny Cash to Sting, to Bobby McFerrin.
