No. 94: Tammy Wynette, ‘Stand by Your Man’ – Top 100 Country Love Songs
Tammy Wynette’s career song also made the list of the Top 100 Country Songs earlier this year. It’s not a classic love song — no one would choose this for their wedding song — but the No. 1 hit makes a strong argument for the sanctity of marriage vows. “Remember your commitment,” Wynette is saying in song No. 94 on the Top 100 Country Love Songs list.
“Stand by your man / Give him two arms to cling to / And something warm to come to / When nights are cold and lonely,” Wynette sings. The oft-covered song is as iconic as any in country music history.
