On April 29, 1971, Tammy Wynette and George Jones recorded what would become their first duet single, “Take Me”. Jones had written the song with Leon Payne (who wrote one of Jones’ favorite earlier recordings, “Blue Side of Lonesome”).
The song had been a #8 hit for Jones in 1965 (and recorded as a solo version by Tammy in the late 60s) and was included in his album, New Country Hits. When RCA Records purchased the rights to Jones’ old Musicor recordings they released their own Take Me album in the fall of 1972.
George and Tammy would take “Take Me” to #9.
From “Take Me” to “One”, George Jones and Tammy Wynette released fourteen charting duet singles and nine albums together.
We join the world in celebrating the life and phenomenal musical career of the greatest country singer of all time, George Jones.
