George Jones & Tammy Wynette Perform ‘Golden Ring’ For The First Time After Their Divorce | Country Music Videos



From Johnny Cash and June Carter to Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, country music has given birth to some of the most iconic couples. However, debatably one of the biggest and most explosive couples to ever come about was that of Tammy Wynette and George Jones.

Their Most Memorable Duets

While their marriage was dissolved after five years, the union between the two stars gave country music some of the most beloved duets, including “We’re Gonna Hold On,” “Near You,” and the iconic “Golden Ring.” Two years after their divorce in 1974, Jones and Wynette reunited for a performance of “Golden Ring.”

The old friends took the stage for their performance of the country ballad that tells the story of a couple who fall in and out of love, Jones changing one peculiar line of the song for the occasion.

“Tammy said ‘One things for certain,” he sang to a blushing Wynette. “‘I don’t love you anymore’.”
