Nancy Sepulvado age is 81 years old, as of now. She was born in Saratoga, Texas, U.S. In 1981, Jones met Nancy, a 34-year-old divorcée from Mansfield, Louisiana. Sepulvado’s positive impact on Jones’s life and career cannot be overstated.
She eventually cleaned up his finances, kept him away from his drug dealers (who reportedly kidnapped her daughter in retaliation), and managed his career. Jones always gave her complete credit for saving his life. Nancy, who did not drink, explained to Nick Tosches in 1994,
“He was drinking but he was fun to be around. It wasn’t love at first sight or anything like that. But I saw what a good person he was, deep down, and I couldn’t help caring about him.”
Jones managed to quit cocaine, but went on a drunken rampage in Alabama in fall 1983, and was once again straitjacketed and committed to Hillcrest Psychiatric Hospital suffering from malnutrition and delusions. By that time, though, physically and emotionally exhausted, he really did want to quit drinking.
In March 1984 in Birmingham, Alabama – at the age of 52 – Jones performed his first sober show since the early ’70s. In June, he told to United Press International,
“All my life it seems like I’ve been running from something. If I knew what it was, maybe I could run in the right direction, but I always seem to end up going the other way.”
Jones began making up many of the dates he had missed, playing them for free to pay back promoters, and began opening his concerts with “No Show Jones”, a song he had written with Glen Martin that poked fun at himself and other country singers.
Jones always stressed that he was not proud of the way he treated loved ones and friends over the years, and was ashamed of disappointing his fans when he missed shows, telling Billboard in 2006,
“I know it hurt my fans in a way and I’ve always been sad about that, it really bothered me for a long time.”
