Why, Baby, Whydetail +

Springer Opera House map
Thu., Apr. 16, 2015, 7:30PM

A rhinestones-and-denim concert show featuring the music George Jones wrote and performed with the great Tammy Wynette. Together and separately, they were country music royalty with 30 No. 1 hits and nine marriages between them — including the volatile one they shared. This show spotlights the songs that put George and Tammy in the Country Music Hall of Fame. Their rise from dirt-poor beginnings to country music fame make these songs all the more special: “The Grand Tour,” “Golden Ring,” “Stand By Your Man,” “The Window Up Above,” “D-I-V-O-R-C-E,” “The One I Loved Back Then,” “White Lightnin’” and, of course, “Why Baby Why.”
