The Greatest Songs In Country Music Are Absolutely Timeless

“Stand By Your Man” – Tammy Wynette

Even though singer Tammy Wynette got divorced four times, her biggest single was “Stand By Your Man.” One of the reasons why this song can stand the test of time is for Wynette’s vocals alone.

“Stand By Your Man” came out in 1968, which was a time when the women’s liberation movement was just starting to emerge. Her song was considered a critical reaction to this.
