When Tammy Wynette was in love, in pain (or as was often the case) both at once, she sang about it. The First Lady of
Country Music recorded, performed and sometimes wrote many of her greatest hits, from I Don’t Want to Play House
Anymore and D-I-V-O-R-C-E to Golden Rings and Til I Can Make It on My Own, in response to events in her often-stormy
personal history.

Unlike the tremendously successful Patsy Cline musicals which in several different incarnations, were mostly just a sampling
of her concerts
Stand By Your Man truly is the Tammy Wynette Story. This musical chronicles the life of this country star.The
show deals with most of Wynette’s most difficult episodes, including her difficult relationship with her mother, her divorces,
her addiction to prescription drugs, her illnesses, her very public feud with Hillary Rodham Clinton, and  her famous
kidnapping incident.

There are 28 of Tammy's hits  in the show. It is ironic, however that the title  song was Wynette's biggest hit because she had
five husbands. But Tammy was a woman who loved being in love. She was extremely strong, but there was a part of her that
always looked to be taken care of. That probably led her to make some hard decisions, especially early in life. The one place
she was truly happy was on the stage.

It's the Tammy Wynette legend and all of her hits  that fills the theatre every night for
Stand By Your Man, but it's the story
that unfolds that has the people leaving knowing they've seen  a thoroughly moving, as well as entertaining evening of
musical theatre.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegraph said, “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”
….”Finally a musical biography to stand by.”
