Tammy Wynette

In many ways, Tammy Wynette deserves the title of "the First Lady of Country Music." During the late '60s and early '70s, she dominated the country charts, scoring 17 number one hits. Along with Loretta Lynn, she defined the role of female country vocalists in the '70s.

After her father, who was a musician, died when she was just eight months old, Wynette was raised at her grandparents' home in Mississippi; her mother moved to Birmingham, AL, to do military work. As a child, Wynette taught herself to play a variety of instruments left behind by her father. When she was a teenager, she moved to Birmingham to be with her mother. At 17, she married her first husband, Euple Byrd, and set to work as a hairdresser and beautician. The marriage was short-lived, but it produced three children within three years. By the time her third child was born, the couple were divorced.

Wynette's third child had spinal meningitis, which meant she had expensive medical bills to pay. In order to earn some extra money, she began performing in clubs at night. In 1965, she landed a regular spot on the television program The Country Boy Eddie Show, which led to appearances on Porter Wagoner's syndicated show. The following year, she moved to Nashville, where she auditioned for several labels before producer Billy Sherrill signed her to Epic Records.

"Apartment #9," Wynette's first single, was released late in 1966 and almost broke the country Top 40 early in 1967. It was followed by "Your Good Girl's Gonna Go Bad," which became a big hit, peaking at number three. The song launched a string of Top Ten hits that ran until the end of the '70s, interrupted by three singles that didn't crack the Top Ten. After "Your Good Girl's Gonna Go Bad" was a success, "My Elusive Dreams" became her first number one in the summer of 1967, followed by "I Don't Wanna Play House" later that year.

During 1968 and 1969, Wynette had five number one hits -- "Take Me to Your World," "D-I-V-O-R-C-E," "Stand by Your Man" (all 1968), "Singing My Song," and "The Ways to Love a Man" (both 1969). In 1968, she started a relationship with George Jones which would prove to be extremely stormy. Beginning in 1971, Wynette and Jones recorded a series of duets -- the first was the Top Ten "Take Me" -- which were as popular as their solo hits. However, the marriage was difficult and the couple divorced in 1975; they continued to record sporadically over the next two decades. Throughout the '70s, Wynette racked up number one hits.

In the early '80s, her career began to slow down. Although she still had hit singles, she didn't reach the Top Ten as easily as she had in the previous decade. That trend continued throughout the rest of the decade and into the '90s. Even though she didn't have as many hits as she'd had in the past, Wynette remained a respected star and a popular concert attraction. In the '80s, she began suffering a variety of health problems, including inflammation of her bile duct. She was hospitalized several times during the mid-'90s before her death on April 6, 1998. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Adore this. (Lyle Lovett does a great version, too.), Love the lap guitar. Cultural Marxism has destroyed the country. Hopefullt, the election of our new, pro-American president will lead the country back to the good day.s (or ahead)

The First Lady of Country Music hands down. Hillary does not even have the right to utter Tammy's name for crying out loud.

I guess that no one still remembers when Hillary Clinton declared quite defensively to the world in 1992 on Sixty Minutes that she just isn't some Tammy Wynette 'Stand By Your Man' kind of woman. No, Hillary, you couldn't hold a candle to Tammy Wynette, who had a skill and who was quite competent at it.

What has happened to the nice songs that used to be played on The Ames Brothers station? It has changed quite a lot. I do NOT think there should be country music on this station, which has been playing a lot today. Tammy Wynette, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn. This is NOT music that I consider similar to The Ames Brothers song selections. Please bring back the correct genre for The Ames Brothers. Someone goofed on this one. Thank you.
