Through the 1960s and 1970s the feminist tradition grew in strength and presence. Several songs set up a strong line of resistance to the masculinized world of country music and opened the doors for the next generation of female country singers who were independent and as successful as men. In the midst of this revolution stood one singer and one song whose complexities have provoked ongoing examination: Tammy Wynette and her signature song, “Stand by Your Man.” Wynette learned to be hard-edged in dealing with the men and the business of Nashville. Her song was controversial due to some lyrics being perceived by others as against women.

Keywords:   feminist tradition, female singers, Tammy Wynette, Stand by Your Man, country music, women in music
