Tammy Wynette - the woman behind the legend and the incredible songs that made her the first lady of country music - leaps off the stage and into your heart. Through her eyes, the audience relives her journey from the cotton fields of Itawamba, Mississippi, to international superstar. With comic flare and dramatic impact Stand by Your Man recounts triumphs and tragedies and explores Tammy's relationships with the five husbands she stood by, including George Jones, her beloved daughters, her strong-willed mother and two of her dearest friends: colorful writer and producer Billy Sherrill and film star Burt Reynolds. Among the 26 songs are "D-I-V-O-R-C-E," "Til I Can Make It on My Own" and "Golden Ring."

"The best thing I have seen and heard in years. I mean the best! From the first minute to the last this was a pure joy." - ThatsCountry.com

"Humor perfectly peppers the tragedy and triumph. But ultimately, the show's heart and honesty are what bring it to life . . . Miraculously, it squeezes a host of songs into the story without cluttering the proceedings." - Fort Worth Star-Telegraph

Stand By Your Man was first produced by BellSouth Musical Series at the Ryman Theater. It was directed by Gabriel Barre
