To coincide with the 70th birthday of the late Tammy Wynette, Epic/Legacy (a division of Sony Music Entertainment) is releasing two dance remixes of Wynette’s iconic “Stand By Your Man” by renowned electronic producer Dave Audé.
“Stand By Your Man” was chosen for the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress in 2010, and remains Wynette’s signature recording. Audé transforms the song into a pulsing dance remix reminiscent of his work with superstars like Madonna, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Lopez and many more. Since 1996, he has had over 75 No. 1 Billboard Dance tracks.
“Stand By Your Man (Dave Aude Radio Remix) and “Stand By Your Man (Dave Aude Club Mix)” will be available for digital download June 15. Fletcher Foster and Darrell Brown served as executive producers on the project.
The new remixes are not Wynette’s first brush with dance music. In 1991, she sang on the hit “Justified and Ancient (Stand By the JAMs)” by English rave troublemakers The KLF. The song went on to hit No. 2 on Billboard’s Dance chart, No. 11 on the Hot 100, and hit No. 1 in 18 countries.
