(Nashville, TN) — Country Music legend Tammy Wynette observed the nation’s annual Opposite Day celebrations yesterday by physically battering husband George Jones and refusing to attend a taping of Hee Haw while getting blackout drunk and having herself committed to a sanitorium. Laughed Wynette of her topsy-turvy 24 hours, “It’s kind of fun to enter a bizarro world where I’m not the one receiving blows or having table lamps being thrown at my head.”
“Add to that my Hee-Haw non-performance and waking up hungover in a mental institution covered in vomit and piss stains,” continued the “Stand By Your Man” singer, “and, well, I can tell what Ol’ Possum sees in it.”
In related news, hubby Jones plans on spending the entire evening knocking them back at the Dew Drop Inn on Park Street with fourth-born girl-child, Tamala Georgette for next Monday’s Take-Your-Daughter-to-Work Day. Thumper’s Grand Ol’ Opry show at the Ryman Auditorium that night will be rescheduled and later cancelled.Editor’s Note: A lovely pair of lachrymose country balladeering elpees by one-time Mrs. Jones. Perfectly played and delivered, only a pound a piece at the Cats Protection chaz in Hythe last week. Country music is much bigger business in the UK than I’d ever imagined.
Lovin’ the vintage, yellow Epic label.
