One of Wynette's most successful duets with George Jones was "Golden Ring," which was released after they were divorced. Like many of their other duets, the song tells the story of a broken marriage, but the experience that led to the tune's creation is rather unusual. 

The song's co-writer, Bobby Braddock, was inspired to write the song after he saw a television show about the life of a handgun. This show followed the gun as it travelled to different owners, each one experiencing their own set of consequences as a result. The show made Braddock think about the life of a wedding ring in a similar way, how it could go from a pawn shop, to a bride, and back to the pawnshop after the marriage fails.

Braddock told the story through song, and it became "Golden Ring."
