Tammy Wynette's Widower's Death Kept From Media


George Richey, who had requested no public memorial service or an announcement of his death, was buried near his wife on Monday, August 16.

Country music legend Tammy Wynette's husband, George Richey, has been buried near his wife after urging friends and family to keep his death from the media. Richey, who managed Wynette throughout the 1980s and co-wrote her hits "Til I Can Make It on My Own" and "You & Me", died on July 31, according to reports. He was 74.

He had requested there be no public memorial service or an announcement of his death, but Nashville newspaper The Tennessean unearthed details of his burial on Monday, August 16. Richey also co-wrote songs for George Jones and worked as a producer.

One of his final achievements before he passed was helping to create the Tammy Wynette: First Lady of Country Music exhibition at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, Tennessee. The tribute show opens on Friday, August 20.

Details of Richey's death remain a mystery, but CMT.com reports he had been ill for some time.
