The Heart of Rock and Soul # 743 Tammy Wynette

'For over a year, I walked around with an idea on a little piece of paper in my pocket,' said Billy Sherrill in a 1975 book about country songwriters. 'After being barraged by Woman's Lib and ERA, I wanted it to be a song for all the women out there who didn't agree; a song for the truly liberated woman, one who is secure enough in her identity to enjoy it. Even though to some skeptics it may hint of chauvinism, as far as I'm concerned, they can like it or lump it. Because 'Stand By Your Man' is just another way of saying 'I love you' - without reservations.'
