Considered to be one of the greatest country songs ever written
, the first Lady of country, Tammy Wynette released the single "Stand By Your Man
" in September of 1968.
As one of the most covered songs in the history of country music
, this song proved to be the most successful single/record
in all of Tammy's career.
In this stunning performance, Tammy Wynette carries herself with such poise and confidence
, that it almost seems unreal
After Johnny Cash introduces her, Tammy begins to humbly take the mic, and what happens next is chilling
As soon as Tammy starts singing, the crowd goes wild for the recognizable tune
in anticipation for the infamous chorus
When the song was first being written, it took all of 15 minutes
(which is nothing), from an idea that came from Tammy Wynette's producer, Billy Sherrill.
Originally, Tammy did not like the song because it wasn't like anything she had ever written before, and there was an incredible high note
that seemed impossible for her to hit.
Throughout her career though, she began to love "Stand By Your Man
", and appreciate the song as a significant milestone
in her career!Tammy Wynette is and was a legend
. She will never be forgotten as the female trailblazer
that she was. Rest in peace Virginia Wynette Pugh.
Sometimes it's hard to be a womanGiving all your love to just one manYou'll have bad times, and he'll have good timesDoin' things that you don't understandBut if you love him, you'll forgive himEven though he's hard to understandAnd if you love him, oh be proud of him'Cause after all he's just a man.Stand by your man, give him two arms to cling toAnd something warm to come toWhen nights are cold and lonely.Stand by your man, and show the world you love himKeep giving all the love you can.Stand by your man.Stand by your man, and show the world you love himKeep giving all the love you can.Stand by your man.
