Tammy Wynette Net Worth
Tammy Wynette net worth – Tammy Wynette was an American country music star who had a net worth of $900 thousand dollars. Born Virginia Wynette Pugh in 1942 in Mississippi, Wynette was raised by her aunt, a self-taught instrumentalist and a crop picker who would harvest cotton in the Mississippi fields as a young girl. Wynette signed with Epic Records in 1966 and debuted her first single, "Apartment No. 9", the same year. Her second single, "Your Good Girl's Gonna Go Band", reached number three on the country music charts. All but three of Wynette's songs released until the end of the 1970s would reach the top ten. Several of her songs that took the number one spot include: "Take Me to Your World", "D-I-V-O-R-C-E", "Stand By Your Man", "Singing My Song", and "The Ways to Love a Man". Wynette was coined the "First Lady of Country Music" and is historically viewed as a pioneer for the women in the genre. Wynette had five marriages over her 55-year life, including a prominent wedding to country music star George Jones in 1969. That union ended in divorce in 1975. She suffered from countless medical problems beginning in the 1970s and ultimately passed away in her sleep on April, 6, 1998. Doctors later discovered a blood clot in her lung that likely killed her, though her body would be exhumed in 1999. As a result of a new investigation, the coroner changed her cause of death to cardiac arrhythmia, which brought about a wrongful death suit. The Grammy Award winner is buried at the Woodlawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Nashville, Tennessee.
