Personalities | Conway Twitty | Mainstream Country
Born Harold Lloyd Jenkins, Twitty took his stage name from Conway, Arkansas and Twitty, Texas.

His powerful vocals and sometimes risquÃ© songs made him one of country musicâ€™s greatest hitmakers â€“ with 40 chart-toppers, including five 1970s duets with Loretta Lynn. â€˜Hello Darlinâ€™â€™ (1970), his biggest country single, was his theme song.
