� Hillary and I were deeply saddened to learn of the untimely death
of Tammy Wynette. For more than 30 years, Tammy Wynette defined the
Nashville sound that helped to make American country western music
popular all over the world. Her string of number one hits has 1
has 1 filled our hearts and made her a legend. From the Mississippi
cotton fields where she worked as a child, to the stage of the Grand
Ole Opry where she presided as the First Lady of Country Music, Tammy
Wynette was an American original, and we will miss her.
