Conway Twitty started his career as a rock 'n' roll singer in the 1950s, with hits such as "Lonely Blue Boy," "Danny Boy" and "It's Only Make Believe." However, he rose to stardom as a country singer in the 1960s. He was one of the biggest country superstars of the 1970s and 1980s, and had over 50 hits over his career.
Twitty was known for his suggestive song lyrics, which often pushed the limits of what was acceptable on radio at the time. Songs like "Linda on My Mind" and "I'd Love to Lay You Down" were considered very risque for the time, but they still managed to slip past radio censors and hit the country charts.
Conway Twitty's career spanned decades, and he continued to release hit singles into the late 1980s. Later hits include "I Want to Know You Before We Make Love," "Julia" and "That's My Job." He continued to sell out concerts and had strong record sales until his death in 1993.Learn more about Art & Literature
