The Saga Of Jerry Lee Lewis, Jimmy Swaggart, And Mickey Gilley" An "Entertaining And Epic 3-in-1 Biography"
Dallas, Texas (Top40 Charts/ Brown Books Publishing Group) Publishers Weekly calls "Unconquered: The Saga of Cousins Jerry Lee Lewis, Jimmy Swaggart, and Mickey Gilley" (Brown Books Publishing Group) by first-time author J.D. Davis of Dallas, Texas an "entertaining and epic 3-in-1 biography."

A unique tale of American music set against the backdrop of the Depression-era South, "Unconquered" explores the lives of famous cousins Jerry Lee Lewis, Jimmy Swaggart and Mickey Gilley from Ferriday, Louisiana, bonded by music, religion and unbreakable family ties.

Drawing from exhaustive research and personal connections with the cousins' friends and family, Davis provides readers with a fresh, eye-opening look at the three men, exploring what inspired three young boys to become the men we know today.

Born on March 15, 1935, Jimmy Swaggart—the Preacher—became one of the most successful gospel singers and televangelists of all time.

Born six months later on September 29, 1935, was Jerry Lee Lewis—the Killer. Lewis went on to become one of the earliest performers of rock 'n' roll, alongside Elvis Presley, and is among the original class to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The youngest of the three cousins, Mickey Gilley—the Cowboy—was born on March 9, 1936. He has had seventeen number one hits and was part owner of Gilley's, the world's largest honky tonk.

Tom Schedler, Louisiana Secretary of State says, "Each man conquered life's roadblocks to achieve his ultimate goals."

Adds songwriter and recording studio pioneer Cowboy Jack Clements, "'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 spent several years researching the lives of these men for his book. "One of the highlights of this effort for me has been the forging of strong bonds and friendships with many of the people who are closest to these incredible men."

"Unconquered" weaves a unique tale of American music centered on the trials, tribulations and achievements of three men who remain truly "unconquered."
