In 1968, Wynette released what went on to become one of her biggest hits, “D-I-V-O-R-C-E.” The main reason the song became so popular is because of the way Wynette spelled out words as she sang. Caught in the middle of a failing marriage, the narrator spells words like “divorce” and “custody” to keep her young song from understanding what’s going on. 

While “D-I-V-O-R-C-E” was somewhat revolutionary for its time, no one ever expected that it, or any of Wynette’s songs for that matter, would be featured in a video game. After all, the song made its debut four years before the world was introduced to one of the earliest video games called Pong.

But 45 years after its release “D-I-V-O-R-C-E” was featured on the “Rebel Radio” station on the popular video game Grand Theft Auto V, which exposed millions of people to the First Lady of Country Music’s iconic song.
