Today would have been the 89th birthday of Conway Twitty, the beloved country and soft rock crooner. While the man born Harold Lloyd Jenkins is no longer with us, as he sadly passed away back in 1993 at the age of 59, we should still pay tribute to him, as he lived an incredible life both on and off the stage. 

Here are a few of our favorite Conwy Twitter moments.

Conway Twitty’s Duets With Loretta Lynn

Of course, we have to start here.

Lynn and Twitt’s legendary partnership began with the 1971 chart-topper “After The Fire Is Gone.”

Followed by “Lead Me On” and “Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man,” as well as many more hit songs over the years.

The Conway and Loretta legacy continues with two of their grandchildren singing together.

Hello Darlin’

That’s it—just those two words. You can not say Conway Twitty’s name anywhere in the South and not have some babyboomer yell “HELLO DARLIN!” in response.

I don’t know why you need to yell it. Conway never yelled, “Hello Darlin.” Do you think a man gets married four times (twice to the same woman) by yelling at the girls? 

Don’t you miss when there were music commercials, and you could order CDs and cassettes over the phone?

His Influential Victory Versus The IRS

Twitty argued successfully that he should be able to deduct loan repayments that he made to investors of his Twitty Burger franchise because doing so would be “protecting his personal business reputation,” according to Saving Country Music

This guy is saying all of this stuff like its a bad thing:

Also, it isn’t “illegal” if the government decides you can do it, bro.
