The singer performed the classic country song at Robert’s Western World on Sunday
The singer-songwriter, 38, serenaded the crowd at Robert’s Western World with a cover of Tammy Wynette’s classic country song “Stand by Your Man” on Sunday. Fans captured footage Del Rey performing in the iconic 150-capacity venue.
As she walked up on the dive bar stage, the "Summertime Sadness" musician received a sweet introduction: “If you guys cheer loud enough, she might move all the way to Nashville, Tennessee. She is a sensation, she is the most country motherf----- in Robert’s tonight, Lana Del Rey.”
After seeming to confirm with the guitarist that the band knew how to play the 1968 Wynette country-pop hit, the alternative artist, who donned a bow in her hair and sported a sweater, floral skirt and cowboy boots, took to the microphone. Frequently smiling throughout the surprise performance, Del Rey thrilled the crowd when she crooned the song’s powerful chorus.
In clips that surfaced of Del Rey’s Nashville appearance, many of Robert’s Western World’s patrons sang and danced along to the cover.
The hitmaker has previously performed the track, which was once deemed controversial for its lyrics that seemed to imply women should always stay with their husbands, despite any wrongdoing. Although, Wynette herself, who had a tumultuous relationship with fellow country music star, George Jones, insisted “Stand by Your Man” was just a “pretty love song.”
Del Rey first sang the cover during her concert at the Walmart AMP in Rogers, Arkansas in August.
She also references Wynette’s marriage, which lasted from 1969 to 1975, on her 2021 Chemtrails Over the Country Club collaboration with country singer Nikki Lane, “Breaking Up Slowly.”
