She looked like a “tiny, troubled wisp of a human being” as she stepped up to the mike, but when she opened up her mouth, out came “an atom bomb voice”. This is how JIMMY McDONAUGH , writer, autobiographer and tonight’s guest on Inquiry, describes Tammy Wynette. She sang before five presidents, had twenty #1 hits and five husbands, and is loved fiercely by her fans. Tammy was one of the great country music stars of the 20th Century, with hits like “Your Good Girl’s Gonna Go Bad”, “Stand By Your Man”, and “Apartment #9”. Yet as her success mounted, her health crumbled until her untimely death. McDonough has talked with many of the people involved in her life, her producers, her friends and exes, and has created a monumental, wild yet still moving, biography. His book is titled: TAMMY WYNETTE: TRAGIC COUNTRY QUEEN.
