Conway Twitty’s Hello Darlin is for All Who Loved and Lost

Conway Twitty's "Hello Darlin"
by

Conway Twitty’s Hello Darlin is one of the most closely associated songs to his name, which also became the song he used to open his concerts. The song, which has an iconic intro hook, ‘Hello darlin, nice to see you‘ inspired by record producer Owen Bradley also earned him several country music nominations. 

Hello Darlin was a self-penned song for his first single and title track for the album of the same name. The song was about a man meeting his former flame again, telling her how beautiful she is, and putting on a bravado that he has already moved on from her. But he confessed his truth that he is in deep sorrow for the mistakes that he had done that led them to part ways. And if she would ever forgive him for all the things that he had done, he would be waiting for her.

It was released in March 1970 and became Conway Twitty‘s fourth number 1 on the US Billboard Hot Country Singles chart. The song spent a total of four weeks at number one on the charts and was also named as the number one song of 1970. Aside from that, it was also nominated for Country Music Association Award for Song of the Year and Country Music Association Award for Single of the Year. 

The song became so successful and popular that it also became a country standard and later on was added to the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999. There were also a number of cover versions released, including George Jones’ in 1993 for his album High Tech Redneck. The song was in tribute of Twitty who passed away earlier in the year due to cardiac arrest. Loretta Lynn also recorded her own version for her 1971 album titled Coal Miner’s Daughter. 

Conway Twitty’s Hello Darlin remains to be an iconic song of his. This is one of the Conway Twitty songs that you should definitely listen to. Check out Twitty’s Hello Darlin live performance below.
