Women Week Throwback - Tammy Wynette

My friend, JNJ, is on board for Women Week with Throwback Thursday.

Today's throwback, staying with The Arrogant Texan's female theme this week, is The First Lady of Country Music... Tammy Wynette. Tammy had many hits, but when you hear "Stand By Your Man," there's no doubt who it is, and arguably one of the most famous songs ever. 

Tammy was born in Mississippi in 1942, and we lost her much too early in 1998, but she left us with so many great songs. But more importantly, she opened the door for so many of today's female performers. And maybe the most impressive thing she did was she accomplished so much and still had time to survive a six-year marraige to George Jones, which produced amazing duets! 

Enjoy the videos below, and always remember Tammy!
