Throughout his career, Conway Twitty proved that he was one of the greatest artists of his time. Once Harold Lloyd Jenkins adopted the stage name of “Conway Twitty,” he dominated country music as well as rock and roll with an incredible presence on stage that resonated with his passionate fan base.
Twitty won Vocal Duo of the Year four years running with Loretta Lynn and has been inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and the Rockabilly Hall of Fame. He was inspired to sing rock by the king himself, Elvis Presley, and even went to Memphis, Tennessee to make sure he got the sound right. The man was a legend and his music speaks for itself.
Twitty had countless hits on the Billboard charts over the years, including “Hello Darlin'” and “It’s Only Make Believe,” as and numerous duets with Loretta Lynn, such as “After the Fire Is Gone” and “Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man.” For some reason, Twitty is one of the few great Nashville country stars not inducted into the Grand Ole Opry, but he’s beloved for all of his musical contributions throughout his celebrated career.
Outside of his incredible career successes, the Arkansas native was married four times to three different women. Here’s a deeper look into the leading ladies of Conway Twitty’s love life.
