Album Review

"Stand by Your Man" became a number one C&W hit as well as Tammy Wynette's signature song, and the album that shares its name topped the C&W album chart and crossed over to the pop chart, achieving platinum sales status along the way. Others in the music industry must have been paying attention, considering that two album tracks, "I Stayed Long Enough" (written by Wynette) and "Forever Yours," soon became hits for Billie Jo Spears and Dottie West, respectively. Unlike Wynette's previous album, D-I-V-O-R-C-E, Stand by Your Man does not rely heavily on material associated with other artists, the most notable exception being a recording of Webb Pierce's 1957 hit "It's My Way." Although the result is a consistent album by '60s standards, the commercial importance of Stand by Your Man is more significantly tied to the strength of the title track than to its overall quality.

Customer Reviews

Stand By Your Man

One of the finest country albums ever put out! Great production and song selection and an album that really helped give the image of country music as the "white man's blues." Wynette's voice is so strong and clear... This is her best all-around album!


Great song!! One of my all time favorites. I can honestly tell you it was one of the first songs on my ipod. You cant have a decent music library without Stand by your man.

Tammy Time!

I must be hallucinating because I think I read a child's comment here. This obviously diminished youth blinded by arrogance claims their kindergarten class performed this Tammy's best vocal better than Tammy! Sweetheart, Tammy would have found that sweet. But me? No way ever, child- not even close. Why? Well, since yo' mamma hasn't explained this to you, allow me. That song is considered to be the single best and influential country song. It's proper performance requires a wisdom ur cannot possess until you have stood behind a few men. Then, and only then never presume to out do a legend. For even then a legend would know it's the entire circumstances around the song which make it what it becomes. Finally, saying you and one hundred empty-headed Carrie Underwoods sing "Stand by Your Man" better than Tammy!? Is like saying you died on the cross better than Jesus! Remember, dear if you said that in Nashville you would be gambling with your front teeth! Grow-up and stick with imitating Madonna. Provided you don't claim the title you simply can't handle. See your school nurse for "reality pills." You need 'em!

In many ways, Tammy Wynette deserves the title of "the First Lady of Country Music." During the late '60s and early '70s, she dominated the country charts, scoring 17 number one hits. Along with Loretta Lynn, she defined the role of female country vocalists in the '70s. After her father, who was a musician, died when she was just eight months old, Wynette was raised at her grandparents' home in Mississippi; her mother moved to Birmingham, AL, to do military work. As a child, Wynette taught herself...
