Wynette’s 1968 classic “Stand by Your Man” is being recognized for stirring strong reactions from the public in light of the growing women’s liberation movement. But the Registry notes that whether the song was seen as highlighting a woman’s strength or her subservience, “Wynette’s artistry transcends any literal message in the song.”

Other material joining the collection include The Sons of the Pioneers’ 1934 song “Tumbling Tumbleweeds” , the 1908 baseball anthem “Take Me Out To The Ballgame,” 1970′s “Songs of the Humpback Whale,” and Al Green’s hit “Let’s Stay Together.”

A total of 25 recordings are being added this year. Recordings selected for preservation are chosen for their cultural, historical, or aesthetic significance. Recordings must be at least ten years old to be eligible for inclusion.
