Wynette Still Remembered Worldwide

Although memorial services were at an all-time high back in April when the legendary Tammy Wynette passed away, the musical icon is still being remembered all across the world. Wynette’s United Kingdom-based manager has planned a special British memorial service, which takes place on Thursday, July 9th. Tammy’s husband George Richey is flying to England to attend the tribute service held at St. James Church in London. Meanwhile, music legend Elton John will record the country classic “Stand by Your Man” for the forthcoming Tammy Wynette tribute album. The disc, scheduled for an August or September release, will also feature tunes by Melissa Etheridge, Faith Hill, Wynonna and Trisha Yearwood, plus Wynette’s very last recording, a cover of the Beach Boys’ “In My Room.” Wynette died in April due to a blood clot in her lung.
