CROSSVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee’s Miss America, Kellye Cash stars as Tammy Wynette in “Stand By Your Man: The Tammy Wynette Story” opening April 27 and running through June 8 at Cumberland County Playhouse.
Kellye Cash will also be appearing in a special benefit concert at the Playhouse on July 7 at 7:30 PM.
Tammy Wynette - the woman behind the legend and the songs that made her the first lady of country music - leaps off the stage and into audiences’ hearts. Witness her journey from the cotton fields of Mississippi to international superstardom in this fully-staged production. With comic flare and dramatic impact, “Stand by Your Man” recounts triumphs and tragedies and explores Wynette's relationships she stood by - including George Jones, her beloved daughters, her strong-willed mother and two of her dearest friends: colorful writer and producer Billy Sherrill and film star Burt Reynolds. The songs in the show are used in concert sequences and to further the plot, as in a traditional musical.
The score includes "Stand By Your Man," "Your Good Girl Is Gonna Go Bad," "My Elusive Dreams," "D-I-V-O-R-C-E," "I Still Believe In Fairytales," "Til I Can Make It On My Own," "Golden Ring," "Singing My Song," and "How Great Thou Art.”
