Awards Errors[edit]

It was 1999, not 2001, when VH1 did the 100 Greatest Women in Rock and Roll, where Tammy ranked at #73.

also, in 1996 Tammy won the Award of Merit from the American Music Awards —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:30, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

George Richey[edit]

There's very little about George Richey in this article apart from the disparaging. As they were married for 20 years I feel that there ought to be an impartial view on this man. Given that he is at odds with Wynette's children then maybe this article should be protected from bias comment.

Blood clot[edit]

actually, there is footage from Davidson County Medical Examiner Bruce Levy that she died from a cardiac arrhythmia. While a blood clot may not have been the primary cause, it is believed to have been a factor.

Disography Errors[edit]

there were several instances of errors with songs and albums, which I fixed. Some songs had the wrong albums listed and in one case the incorrect album title listed.

Also in the sidebar, someone incorrectly edited the record label information. Tammy was on the Epic Records roster from August of 1966 until her death in April of 1998. Epic did become part of the Sony Music Entertainment family in 1990, However, the label was, and still is, as of December 7, 2007, still in existence. Though Tammy's last studio album was released in 1995, on MCA Records (the duet album "One" with George Jones) she continued to be a part of the Epic roster until 1998. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:16, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

Somebody please correct the Discography section. Some perverted moron had too much free time.

PLEASE SIGN your comments. (All you need do is hit the button with four little doo-dads

Also Tammy Wynette never sued the Blues Brothers for using Stand by Your Man in the 1980 movie. Some people just like to stir up shit!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:17, 28 September 2007 (UTC)


"Her 1969 marriage to legendary country singer, George Jones (which would end in divorce in 1975) created the first country music couple." What does this mean? They were the first country musicians to get married? Can someone translate it into an approximation of English? —Preceding unsigned comment added by AuntFlo (talkcontribs) 10:56, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

I agree. They were not the first country musicians to marry. Johnny Cash and June Carter were married March 1, 1968. Cater's parents, country musicians A.P. and Sara Carter, were married in the 1920's. This is definitely not a true statement.--Agl7227 (talk) 12:55, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

While George Jones and Tammy Wynette were not the first married couple in Country Music, they were the first "super couple" in the modern "Tim & Faith" sense of the definition. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:53, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

"Legacy" needs citations.[edit]

There are no citations for any of the information in the "Legacy" section. There is an urgent need that all of this "information" be documented, because this is the section where the most economically valuable information is located. It is a marketer's dream to get information about how great his/ her product is to the public, and in this section we are saying that the songs have lasting value. We need to tell the public the source of the information about the enduring value of the songs. Richard E. Davies (talk) 11:59, 10 September 2011

Grave site[edit]

Wynette's tomb was restored to her stage name. Zabadu (talk) 16:52, 24 March 2014 (UTC)


Came here to read about the 1978 'kidnap' but there's not a word about it. It's a matter of fact that this took place, but a well-founded dispute as to whether it was genuine, or staged in order to cover up abuse. Would be good to have a definitive encyclopaedic section on this - it was extremely big news at the time so shouldn't be left out of the article... — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:11, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

Same. Can't believe it's late 2017 with still no mention. I've added a brief source. czar 17:29, 11 November 2017 (UTC)
