NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 4, 2010-The entire collection of professional memorabilia documenting the stellar career of Tammy Wynette has arrived at the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum. The move was facilitated by George Richey, Wynette’s widower, and Wanda Williams, after numerous discussions with the Museum.

Among the 14 ultra-feminine stage costumes, all dating from the latter years of her career, are the red jacket trimmed in gold brocade that Wynette wore when she sang “Stand by Your Man” with Lyle Lovett on NBC’s Tonight Show in 1993. The collection includes her trademark beaded jackets, gowns and jumpsuits, most created by fashion designers Jeff Billings and Lillie Rubin.
