Remembering Conway Twitty – 20 Years Later

Conway Twitty

It’s been 20 years since we lost “the best friend a song ever had!” Conway Twitty left this world, way before his time, on June 5, 1993 after a show in Branson, Missouri.

At the time, Conway was the ‘George Strait’ of Country Music, holding the title for the most No. 1 records (40 Billboard, 55 All Charts Combined). Hot off the heels of early ’90s hits like ‘Crazy In Love’ ‘I Couldn’t See You Leavin” and ‘She’s Got A Man On Her Mind,’ Twitty was proving he was one of the legends who could still compete with the young new talent of the decade.

Sadly, while on tour, he fell ill and quickly passed on his way home from a show in Branson. Twitty died in Springfield, Missouri from an abdominal aortic aneurysm, at the age of 59. 20 Years after his death, we still remember and honor his great contributions to American Music and remind new country fans that Conway Twitty’s career played a major role in the Country Music history books.

Also like George Strait, Conway Twitty shied away from public interviews, television appearances, and making music videos. However, he did open up a bit more towards the end of his career. I’d like to share what is described as his final recording and video, ‘Rainy Night In Georgia’ with Sam Moore, along with two of his classics ‘Hello Darlin’ from 1970 and ‘Tight Fittin’ Jeans’ from 1981.
