In 1967, country music superstar Tammy Wynette was starting to gain a career in the hope of making a name for herself. With the release of her debut record, “Your Good Girl’s Gonna Go Bad,” her dream to be a star materialized and her career soon took off.
Before her success, the first ever single that Wynette released was “Apartment No. 9,” which soon placed no. 44 on the chart. Determined and focus at snatching the top spot, she went on to covet the spot with the release of the album’s title track. “Your Good Girl’s Gonna Go Bad” soon clinched the third place on the Country Singles chart.
“Your Good Girl’s Gonna Go Bad”
Written by Billy Sherill and Glenn Sutton, “Your Good Girl’s Gonna Go Bad” is about a woman talking to her husband. The song is narrated from the perspective of the woman; the song emphasizes the woman being a “good girl.” However, as many men would know, she recognizes that her husband somewhat likes the “wild sides” of life. With this, the woman warns her husband that his “good girl” may just become bad if he continues such an act.
In fact, this is very evident in one of the lines of the song that goes:
“If you like ‘em painted up powdered up then you ought to be glad, Cause your good girl’s gonna go bad…”
Watch Tammy Wynette’s original version of the song:
Georgette Jones Stunning Rendition
Despite the song having strong and aggressive content, Wynette delivered it with a sense of innocence. In an appearance on Larry’s Country Diner, Wynette’s daughter with George Jones, Georgette, sang the song and honored her mother with the same singing style.
True enough, Georgette proves that she is the daughter of two legendary country music artists. You can hear hints of Wynette’s voice in her daughter’s. However, it was Jones’ voice that stood out in her own. This combination of beautiful sounds musically fits the fantastic rendition. It was like hearing Wynette sing again but in a different body.
Furthermore, Georgette wowed the audience with her charm that’s like her mother’s. Also, she connected with the crowd while performing making her a true entertainer and a great talent.
Now, you cannot miss witnessing Georgette’s angelic voice. Watch her perform “Your Good Girl’s Gonna Go Bad” on Larry’s Country Diner:
