CONWAY TWITTY - His parents named him Harold Lloyd Jenkins. But early in his musical ramblings he played engagements in Conway, Arkansas, and Twitty, Texas, and soon the music world had a brand new star, Conway Twitty. He started out as a rock and roll singer, and before he decided to come home to country music he had earned three Gold Records, including the smash hit, Its Only Make Believe?.
His success was assured in 1970 when Hello Darlin won him his first Gold Record as a country performer.
A year later he teamed with Loretta Lynn, and together they’ve captured the Country Music Association’s Duo of the Year Award many times.
An accomplished songwriter as well, Conway has penned over 200 tunes, 11 of which have made it to No. 1 on the charts. He makes his home in the Nashville suburb of Hendersonville where he often treats family and friends to his famous Twitty Burger.
