I wasn't planning on a post this week, but DKMF has sent me a request, and I didn't see the harm in it, and it's a bit different from what I normally do, so this blog's for you DKMF.
This blog will be featuring two of my, and DKMF's favorite artists. One that flies under the radar, and another that has the second most number 1s in Country Music history.
The two artists being featured will be Conway Twitty and Don Williams.
Both have unique styles, and both are great singers. When Conway first started as a rock artists, many thought it was just Elvis going by another name, but like DKMF says, "Elvis wishes he could have Conway's voice."
Don Williams has been called the gentle giant. He's not a huge man, I've met him before, and he's a nice guy, that's where the gentle part comes in. The giant part comes from his deep voice.
Feedback would be appreciated, please comment.
Let's get this started
Conway Twitty- Make Believe
This is Conway's only number 1 rock hit, and the song that put him on the map. It's been remade countless times, but none compare to the original.
Don Williams- Amanda
Great love song here. Waylon Jennings als had a big hit with this song, but Don's came first. The shock of aging, not changing, and saying his wife cold have married a gentleman, but she chose him.
Conway Twitty- Hello Darlin(English and Russian)
This is Conway's most popular song, and it's very popular with the ladies. Possibly the greatest love gone wrong song ever made. Conway also trained with a language professor at the Uniersity of Oklahoma to record a Russian version to be played for the Russian Cosmonauts.
Don Williams- Some Broken Hearts Never Mend
The title of the song says it all. He goes through the same routine everyday, but can't get his exlover off his mind.
Conway Twitty- Linda on my Mind
When it comes to cheating songs, nobody made them like Conway. Lying in his bed, next to his wife, thinking about his mistress, Linda.
Don Williams- Good Ole Boys Like Me
A great song about growing up, trying to stay out of trouble, and the great memories from childhood.
Last, but not least
Conway Twitty- Last Date
Popular instrumental by Floyd Cramer, Conway added the lyrics. Great steel guitar in his version as well. A song about the one that got away.
Hope you enjoy DKMF
