Today, the website for Tammy Wynette, the Queen of Country Music, revealed that she is one of several music icons that will be honored with an upcoming U.S. postage stamp. Wynette joins the Father of Bluegrass Music, Bill Monroe, as well as Roy Orbison, Sam Cooke, and other music icons that are planned to have their own postage stamp.

Being a fan of both Tammy and Bill Monroe, this is exciting news. I wish they had done the Monroe stamp back when it was his 100th birthday celebration. Nevertheless, it is long overdue.
