Showtime Releasing “George & Tammy” Soundtrack with 26 Songs Sung by Michael Shannon & Jessica Chastain

Fans of Showtime’s ”George & Tammy” series will get a chance to hear more from series stars Jessica Chastain and Michael Shannon, with the release of ”George & Tammy (Original Series Soundtrack)” today. The 26-track album features iterations performed by Chastain and Shannon of songs made famous by Tammy Wynette and George Jones, including Wynette’s “Stand by Your Man” and “D-I-V-O-R-C-E,” as well as Jones’ “He Stopped Loving Her Today, and “The Race Is On,” and their duets including “Golden Ring.”

The six-episode series “George & Tammy” centers on the sometimes tumultuous love story shared by Jones and Wynette. The couple wed on February 16th, 1969, and released their first album together, “We Go Together”, in 1971. Over the course of their careers, Wynette and Jones would record eight more albums together. The pair divorced in 1975, and each went on to marry other people. Wynette died in 1998 at age 55, while Jones died in 2013 at age 81.
