Did you know the real Conway Twitty….

Graduated from Tallulah High School in Tallulah, Louisiana.

His name came from combining the names of the towns of Conway, Arkansas and Twitty, Texas.

Recorded with legendary guitarist Hank Garland in the early 1960s.

Originally planned to break into professional baseball with a Philadelphia Phillies farm team but the Army drafted him before the Phillies could.

Also included in his incredible string of hits were his duets with Loretta Lynn. Of the 12 duets they released together, every one of them made the top 10 of Billboard`s country singles chart, with five going to No. 1 — “After the Fire is Gone” and “Lead Me On” (both 1971); “Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man” (1973); “As Soon as I Hang Up the Phone” (1974); and “Feelin`s” (1975

Elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1998.

Married 3 times.

My favorite song by Conway Twitty—mine is Tight Fittin’ Jeans 1983.
