What is Tamala Georgette Jones’ net worth? Who is Georgette Jones’ husband?
Tamala Georgette Jones (now named Georgette Jones Lennon) is an American country & western singer.
She is best known as the daughter of country & western legends Tammy Wynette and George Jones.
The Origin Story
Jones was born Tamala Georgette Jones on October 5th, 1970, in Lakeland, Florida.
Her parents were George Jones – a famous country & western singer in his own right – and Tammy Wynette, who was also a headlining country & western act.
Jones’ father was absent for much of her childhood due to his problems with alcoholism and drug abuse; he and Wynette divorced when their daughter was only six years old.
Though her parents continued to occasionally perform together, there was much acrimony, and the two were unable to fully reconcile until much later in Jones’ life.
George Jones passed away in 2013. “Dad achieved much with awards and his career, but his biggest achievement is his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren,” Georgette wrote on her Instagram in April 2023.
Her mom, Tammy Wynette, passed away on April 6, 1998. “There’s not a single day that goes by that I don’t think of her and miss her terribly,” Jones said about her mother.
Jones committed to following in her parents’ footsteps early on.
She first sang for an audience at the age of three, and recorded a duet with her father – the aptly-titled “Daddy Come Home” – when she was ten.
Jones did not initially pursue a career in music; however, she became a registered nurse, a profession in which she remained for 17 years.
Jones did not begin professionally singing until 2010.
Following her mother’s death in 1999, she sang a tribute – “I Hope You Knew” on Mother’s Day. Furthermore, she featured on another duet with her father – “You And Me Time” – that was included on George Jones’ final album.
Jones began her solo career in 2010, with the album A Slightly Used Woman.
Critics at the time noted that her voice had an “airy and sweet” feel, but that she sometimes struggled to match the power of some of the lyrics.
She followed up her debut album with 2011’s Strong Enough To Cry.
Though it did not receive the widespread attention that either of her parents’ musical releases garnered, it was nevertheless fairly popular, with some reviewers saying that Jones’ range had improved and that her vocals were more powerful than previously.
Jones then took an 8-year hiatus before returning in 2019 with the album Skin.
Many critics agreed that it was Jones’ strongest offering yet, with soaring vocals and a tracklist that, though somewhat uneven, was noted for its spectacular highs.
Jones has acted on TV once: in 2008, she portrayed her mother in a TV series entitled Sordid Lives: The Series, which chronicled her mother and father’s turbid relationship.
Jones also has two writing credits to her name; she wrote two episodes of the 2022 Showtime Drama Tammy & George, which chronicled the tumultuous marriage of Jones’ parents.
Jones co-authored a biography detailing her life growing up with her parents entitled The Three Of Us.
In addition, she has recently found prominence as an online gamer, and streams many of her gaming sessions for her followers.
Little is known of Jones’ personal life outside of her professional work. However, it is known that Georgette Jones is married to Jamie Lennon. The two married in 2011.
Jamie currently works as a Pedal Steel Guitarist for his wife. He also performed with Shooter Jennings.
She has twin sons, though their names are not a matter of public record. They were born in 1997. Here is a photo of Georgette’s children.

Tammy Wynette’s daughters filed a $50 million wrongful death lawsuit against her doctor, Dr. Wallis Marsh, and her husband, George Richey, in April 1999.
The lawsuit was prompted by local reporter Jennifer Kraus’ discovery that Midazolam (a benzodiazepine medication commonly used in anxiety disorders, anesthesia, and seizures) had been shipped to Wynette’s home shortly before her death. The suit alleged negligence on the part of both Marsh and Richey for their role in Wynette’s passing.
