Country’s “First Lady”
She charted 23 number one hits and helped define the role of women in Country Music. You know her music well, “Your Good Girl’s Gonna Go Bad”, “D-I-V-O-R-C-E”, “Take Me to Your World” and many others. Each has become a Country standard, a welcome sound that seems to always fit. Tammy Wynette was always a practical woman. In 1963, she became a hairdresser, and she renewed her cosmetology license every year for the rest of her life, in case she had to go back to a day job. “Stand By Your Man” was written in just 15 minutes and became one of her best known records, and won her a Grammy for Best Female Country Vocal Performance.
