Tammy Wynette Hologram to Debut in 2016
Although Tammy Wynette passed away in 1998, fans will soon have the chance to see her in concert once again.
The singer will take the stage in hologram form sometime in 2016. Hologram USA, along with the Bicycle Music Company, the latter of which owns the rights to Wynette's songs, is creating a show that will open in Nashville next year.
“It’s an honor to celebrate America’s musical heritage by introducing the artistry of Tammy Wynette to new audiences,” Hologram USA CEO Alki David says in a statement. “We are creating a full-length show involving both songs and stories from her life and truly authentic performances.”
The "First Lady of Country Music" passed away in her sleep in April of 1998, at the age of 55. In her career, she had a total of 23 No. 1 hits -- songs such as "Stand By Your Man," "The Ways to Love a Man" and "D-I-V-O-R-C-E," all of which will likely be featured in Wynette's posthumous appearances onstage in Music City.
Wynette isn't the first country star to be remembered via hologram: Patsy Cline is Hologram USA's first country music hologram project; her hologram was announced in June of 2015. Additionally, Whitney Houston and Buddy Holly are other artists that the company has focused on.
