Video Flashback: Tammy Wynette, Lyle Lovett Duet On ‘Stand By Your Man’ – Rolling Stone

In 1968, country singer Tammy Wynette was on a hot streak that began two years earlier with “Your Good Girl’s Gonna Go Bad.” The first of her Number One singles, “I Don’t Wanna Play House,” topped the country chart in ’67, followed by “Take Me to Your World,” “D-I-V-O-R-C-E” and the song she would be most closely associated with during – and after – her lifetime, “Stand By Your Man.”

… The song was featured in a number of films and … resurfaced in a version sung by Lyle Lovett for the Academy Award-winning film, The Crying Game. … In 1993, Lovett appeared on the Tonight Show With Jay Leno, accompanied by Wynette for a performance of the song, which was featured on the film’s eclectic soundtrack.
