Jim Croce was an American singer-songwriter who between 1966 and 1973 released five studio albums. His singles "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown" and "Time in a Bottle" were both number one hits on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. On September 20, 1973, the day that his ABC single "I Got a Name" was released, Croce and five others were killed in a plane crash. There is a new book about Jim Croce written by his wife Ingrid and her husband Jimmy Rock. The book is called "I Got a Name: The Jim Croce Story."
Croce essentially tells a love story and even reveals intimate love letters between her and Jim Croce.
