    When I was a young man growing up, I grew up with country music. I grew to love his work. later in life I was working as a security officer traveling with a now gone Crabtree security. they worked the county fairs. It was with this job I got to meet the real man and was able to have a conversation with Conway(Harold). A genuine person he was. I will never forget the words of advice he gave me that day. It broke my heart later in life when I learned of his tragic death. I will never forget you Conway. You will always have a place in my heart.

    I was on my senior trip in Branson when all this happened..we actually saw one of his last shows where he started telling all about his life. he said he had never spoken at concerts before becasue it was all about the music. I can’t help but wonder if he knew something was wrong..we were all devestated to say the least. we just loved conway twitty

  35. Betty Summers Says:

    Conway was my dream. I seen him many times, had my picture taken with him at Twitty City in Tennessee. He was very dear to me and I will cherish the picture always. I have all his tapes, records and cd’s, shirts, books. He died on my anniversary and I cried like a baby, I felt like a part of me was gone. What else can I say except he was the greatest singer in my eyes…

    Conway is my favorite singer of all time. Still I have his cd’s in my car and he is 50% of the music I still listen to.

I remember the day he died and my husband and I was driving in the car and when I heard the radio announcement I started crying and just couldn’t get over that for a long while.

    I was fortunate enough to attend one of Conway’s last concerts. It was performed at King’s Capri, owned by Bob King. (a very close friend of his) I shook his hand, put my arm around his shoulder and even had my picture taken with him. I will cherish this memory for the rest of my life!!!!!

  79. Dwain Dodd Says:

    The King’s Capri was a place that many a Country Legends began their career. Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins just to mention a few. The King’s Capri was located just north of Swifton on Rock-n-Roll Highway 67. It burned to the ground just a couple of years ago.

    I had the chance to meet Conway and at that time I wasn’t even on the air yet. One thing about Conway, was his voice. There is none other like it that I know of besides his son Michael, which I also had the privaledge of meeting, in WPB,FL at Fillies Saloon. Conway is and will always be a legend. RIP Conway. I Love You & I’ll keep playing your music so it will always live on.

  86. Dave Dunlop-Canada Says:

    YOU KNOW THOSE MOMENTS AND MEMORIES IN LIFE WHERE YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHERE YOU WERE WHEN SOMETHING TRAMATIC HAPPENS THAT WILL STAY WITH YOU FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE? MY WIFE WAS IN THE HOSPITAL THAT DAY WHEN I BROKE THE NEWS TO HER THAT CONWAY HAD PASSED ON. IT RANKS UP THERE WITH KENNEDY AND KING! WE ARE BOTH SINGERS AND I DO A LOT OF CONWAY’S GREATEST HITS WHENEVER I CAN. BUT THE ONE THAT REALLY STICKS OUT FOR ME IS “THE ROSE”. NOBODY COULD, OR EVER WILL PUT THE KIND OF HEART AND SOUL INTO A SONG LIKE HE COULD. I STILL MISS HIM GREATLY! HIS LAST ALBUM THAT YEAR IN 1993 I THINK WAS ONE OF HIS BEST, ESPECIALLY “AN OLD MEMORY LIKE ME” GOD IS TRUELY SMILING ON HIM AS HE SINGS IN HIS GREAT CHOIR! RIP C.T.!
