Country music icons Dolly Parton and Tammy Wynette took before their eager audience for a nostalgic medley that had viewers brimming with awe. Gracing Parton’s television show, Dolly, in 1988, Wynette had a brief chat with the blonde host prior to lighting up their fans with a remarkable duet.
As Parton addressed the icon, she recalled a fact she had learned about Wynette that had the two singers howling with laughter. “I had the number one selling country song until “9 to 5″ come along,” Wynette admitted, crediting the catchy tune for ending her 15-year streak. Parton, all giggles, was genuinely unknowledgeable that her hardworking anthem had knocked Wynette from her streak. After a bit of light joking, the two kicked off an unforgettable performance of Wynette’s biggest career hits.
The gals began their duet by passionately performing the empowering hit “Stand By Your Man,” alternating between harmonies and leads. Their performance packed a powerful punch of timeless hits, covering the iconic songs, “Apartment #9”, “D-I-V-O-R-C-E”, “I Don’t Wanna Play House”, and “Your Good Girl’s Gonna Go Bad”.
The audience erupted with cheers as the two country gals ended their unforgettable performance and revived the classic tune that made Wynette the household name she is today. Be sure to check out the one-of-a-kind performance below!
