Rolling Stone #578 - May 17, 1990

"I was so dad-gum nervous backstage, I swear I wished for a Valium the size of a half dollar," says Tammy Wynette, who played at the Roxy, in Los Angeles, in front of an audience that included Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, Burt Reynolds and Randy Travis. But the woman who helped pen the classic "Stand by Your Man" did fine without the downer.

Wynette is now back in the studio, starting her next album. Lynne has just finished a solo album, Armchair Theater, due later this month, featuring pals Petty and George Harrison, Word is that Lynne, Petty, Harrison, and fellow Traveling Wilbury Bob Dylan will be going out on tour, with no one replacing the late Roy Orbison.
