Country legend Tammy Wynette born 1942

Country music royalty Tammy Wynette, born May 5, 1942, released "Stand By Your Man" in September 1968 and is one of the all-time best selling songs in country music.  Growing up in Mississippi, she worked in the cotton fields as a girl. She moved to Nashville in 1966 to pursue her dream of a singer and got her break when she signed with Epic Records and recorded "Apartment #9" her first hit.

She left us too early April 6, 1998.

I was surprised to see her performing a dance track with the group KLF but she knocks it out of the park, whether country or dance.
