FROM: Taste Of Country
Prior to George Strait, Conway Twitty held the record for the most No. 1 records in country music history. In the beginning, it looked like baseball was where the Mississippi man was headed — until he was drafted during the Korean War. After discovering and following the rock n' roll stars of the day, Twitty decided to give music a shot. Sun Records in Memphis was the first stop, but no hits prevailed. After a switch to MGM Records, Twitty rocked the teenage jukebox with ‘It’s Only Make Believe’ in 1958. That also led to appearances in teen-based movies. Twitty had such an impact that his story and name were parodied by the character ‘Conrad Birdie’ in the Broadway musical 'Bye Bye Birdie.' When Twitty hit his 30s, he decided to change courses and pursue his love of country music. In 1966, the journey began, thanks to a loyal legion of fans who would follow him anywhere. From early country hits like ‘You’ve Never Been This Far Before’ and ‘Linda on My Mind,’ to ‘80s classics like ‘Tight Fittin Jeans’ and ‘I’d Just Love to Lay You Down,’ these are the Top 10 Conway Twitty songs.
