In 1968, country legend Tammy Wynette was dubbed the "Queen of Country Music" following the release of her iconic song, "Stand By Your Man."
Wynette's success started two years prior to the iconic song, when she released her debut album, Your Good Girl's Gonna Go Bad. The album brought Wynette into the spotlight, and we're glad it did!
Her following albums did not disappoint, and Wynette began creating a string of number one hit songs, including "I Don't Wanna Play House," "Take Me to Your World," and "D-I-V-O-R-C-E."
But in 1968, Wynette's fame was taken to the next level when she released the album, Stand By Your Man.
Released as a single from the album in late 1968, "Stand By Your Man" was co-written by Wynette herself. The song was an instant hit, topping the Billboard country chart, as well as crossing over to the pop chart and peaking at #19.
The song became the most successful record of Wynette's career, as well as one of the most covered songs of all time in country music history. CMT also named "Stand By Your Man" the number 1 song on the Top 100 Country Music Song list.
Throughout her musical career, Wynette always took a moment to perform the song that her fans loved.
In 1969, a proud Johnny Cash welcomed Wynette on stage to perform her signature song on the Johnny Cash Show. The performance was stunning, and the crowd couldn't have been more excited!
By 1975, "Stand By Your Man" was routine during Wynette's performances. Below, in a dazzling green top, Wynette stunned with yet another jaw-dropping performance of the iconic tune.
In 1998, before her passing, Wynette performed her hit song one last time on television. Wynette was featured on TNN's Grand Ole Opry special, as the kick-off performance, and it was wonderful!
"Stand By Your Man" will forever be remembered as the song that took Tammy Wynette from country star to country superstar.
Thank you for the music, Tammy. You will always be remembered.
