Harold Lloyd Jenkins or more popularly known as Conway Twitty was one of the greatest and well-loved country singers of all time. His achievements in the music industry gave him the recognition he truly deserved. Throughout his entire career, he had received a number of awards from the Country Music Association. Despite not being a member of the Grand Ole Opry, Twitty became a part of the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Rockabilly Hall of Fame.

Throughout the span of his career, he released a plethora of no. 1 hits. His songs like “Hello Darlin’,” “It’s Only Make Believe,” “Don’t Cry Joni,” and I’d Love to Lay You Down” are just some of these. Meanwhile, in 1975, he released a song that has an interesting story. This song was “Linda on My Mind,” which later became his 12th no. 1 song.

Conway Twitty’s 1975 Hit: “Linda on My Mind”

Penned by Conway Twitty himself, “Linda on My Mind” was released in January 1975. It was the first single and title track from his album of the same name.

In addition, “Linda on My Mind” became Twitty’s 12th no. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in 1975. Also, it sat atop the RPM Country Tracks in Canada. Meanwhile, it penetrated the pop charts and ranked 61st.

In total, the single remained at no. 1 for only one week and spent a total of eight weeks on the country charts.

The Story Behind

 “Linda on My Mind” narrates a tale of a man who wants to leave his current relationship for a new love, a woman named Linda.

Even though he can’t get Linda off his mind, he still feels bad for the pain he has caused his former love.

“Lord, it’s killing me to see her crying.

She knows I’m lying here beside her with Linda onmy mind…”

George Strait Renders Twitty’s Hit

In 2005, King George Strait performed “Linda on My Mind” at the Allstate Arena in Chicago. He captivated the audience with his sentimental delivery of the well-written lyrics.

Truly, the song is a perfect fit for Strait. Its classic country vibe exudes as complemented by his vocals.
