After years of medical problems which resulted in[ numerous hospitalizations, roughly 15 major operations and an addiction to pain medication, country
singer Tammy Wynette died on April 6, 1998 at the age of 55 while sleeping

until shortly before her death and had other performances scheduled.

Wynette was called the "First Lady of Country Music", and her best-known
song, "
Stand by Your Man", is one of the best-selling hit singles by a woman

charted 20 number-one songs. Along with
