Stand By Your ‘Gram? Tammy Wynette to Receive the Hologram Treatment

”Stand By Your Man“ singer will join the ranks of Tupac Shakur and Michael Jackson early next year

Apparently, Tammy Wynette and Tupac Shakur have more in common than you might have thought.

“Stand By Your Man” singer Wynette is the latest artist to receive the hologram treatment, following in the digitized posthumous footsteps of Shakur and Michael Jackson.

The Wynette hologram, which is being created by Hologram USA in partnership with Wynette’s music publisher The Bicycle Music Company, will be unveiled in Nashville in early 2016, at a venue to be announced in the first quarter of 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 said. “We are creating a full length show involving both songs and stories from her life and truly authentic performances.”

Wynette, whose hits also included  “Take Me to Your World” and “D-I-V-O-R-C-E,” died in 1998 at age 55, after suffering numerous health problems in the preceding two decades.

Hologram USA is also working on holograms for country music legend Patsy Cline, which will also debut in 2016, as well as Whitney Houston, Liberace, Buddy Holly and comedians Andy Kaufman and Redd Foxx.
