No. 44: Tammy Wynette, ‘Stand by Your Man’ – Top 100 Country Songs

Stand By Your Man

Often referred to as the First Lady of country music, Tammy Wynette may be best known for her 1968 No. 1 country song, ‘Stand By Your Man,’ which also became Wynette’s biggest crossover success, cracking the mainstream Top 20.

Our choice as the No. 44 entry on the Top 100 Country Songs list was elected into the U.S. Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry in 2010 as a “culturally, historically, and aesthetically significant” recording in popular American music history. ‘Stand By Your Man’ has become one of the most-covered songs in country music history.
