Six months after Tammy Wynette scored a #1 country hit with “Another Lonely Song”, Andy Williams released a pop version of the song - produced by Tammy’s studio chief, Billy Sherrill.
You And Me is released in September, 1976. The US cover of Tammy Wynette’s 17th solo studio album featured a blurry “in concert” shot while the UK version featured a close up of Tammy in furs.
“I Love You, Mr. Jones” was the flip side of the #1 Tammy Wynette hit, “Good Lovin’”, released in the summer of 1971.
The single topped the country charts just before Jones’ 40th birthday (September 12).
On September 4, 1991 Dottie West (pictured above with Tammy Wynette in 1980) died from injuries sustained in a car crash. During that same week in 1979 Dottie and duet partner Kenny Rogers peaked at #3 on Billboard’s country charts with their version of Tammy’s hit, “‘Til I Can Make It On My Own”.
“Dottie was country. Not just country music, but country in her heart, her home, her beliefs.” - Tammy Wynette, Sep. 5, 1991 (The Tennesseean)
