Who Is Conway? Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Chris Young Honor Legend

In the Luke Bryan hit ‘That’s My Kind Of Night,’ he suggests putting on his ‘mix tape’ with a little Conway or T-Pain in the line-up. We’d like to point out that this is not the first time Conway has been name-checked in the last few years. Blake Shelton had fun name dropping the legend in two hits, ‘Hillbilly Bone’ and ‘Honeybee.’ Meanwhile, Chris Young also referenced one of Conway’s biggest hits in his song ‘I Can Take It From There.’

Wondering who is this Conway? Conway is Conway Twitty. After starting in pop music, in the late ’50s, with hits like ‘It’s Only Make Believe,’ he made the transition to Country Music in 1965. Twitty logged more Number 1 hits than any other artist in any genre, until that record was shattered by George Strait.

‘Hello Darlin” ‘Tight Fittin’ Jeans’ ‘Don’t Take It Away’ ‘I’d Just Love To Lay You Down’ ‘Happy Birthday Darlin” ‘Slow Hand’ ‘That’s My Job’ ‘Don’t Call Him A Cowboy’ and ‘I Don’t Know A Thing About Love (The Moon Song)’ are just a few of his Number One hits. In addition to a string of hit duets with Loretta Lynn (‘Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man’ ‘Lead Me On’), Conway Twitty placed close to 100 singles on the Billboard Country Charts.

Sadly, the Country Music Hall of Famer passed in 1993 at the age of 59 of an abdominal aneurysm. If you’re just learning of Conway’s name and music, thanks to these young country stars, take a moment to download some of his greatest hits and you’ll know why he’s still getting recognition all these years later.

Now it’s time for a Conway Twitty tribute album, can someone make that happen?
