“Hello Darlin'” is available to country radio by Country Rewind Records
Conway Twitty, best known for his smooth voice voice and hit song “Hello Darlin” has a new single heading to radio via Country Rewind Records (CDX). “Hello Darlin” is the first single from Twitty’s new Timeless album, a collection of never before heard recordings from Twitty himself. The music available on ConwayTwitty.com, Amazon, Spotify, Google Play and Apple Music.
All the tracks on the album were intended solely for broadcast over country radio and were then forgotten. The original master tapes of those radio shows were long thought to have been destroyed, but were discovered by Country Rewind Records CEO Tom Gramuglia. Among the masters were recordings by Johnny Russell, Waylon Jennings, Connie Smith, Mickey Gilley, Ferlin Husky, Faron Young, Jeannie C. Riley and others, dating from the same era.
“These recordings were long forgotten and few people who knew of their existence,” states Gramuglia. “They’ve never before been made commercially available to the public and I truly felt like this music needed to be shared with long-time traditional fans, and heard by our younger generation of Millennials.”
“I have been a huge Conway Twitty fan all of my life. I was introduced to his music by my mother, who was one of his biggest fans. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to see Conway at Lanierland in Cumming, GA in 1982. It was magical and one of my favorite memories,” comments CDX Nashville Director of Operations Ally Kelly. “While the version of “Hello, Darlin'” we are all familiar with is iconic voice, this new release sounds like what I heard that night at the show – so much feeling, so much emotion . . . so much CONWAY!”
Conway Twitty created a musical legacy that continues to endure and thrive almost a quarter-century after his passing in 1993. He is one of America’s most-loved performers of all-time, compiling 55 No. 1 hits.
While the sessions that comprise Timeless weren’t the typical Decca recording session with Owen Bradley producing, these tracks – cut at the studio of former Elvis Presley band member Scotty Moore – drip with as much perfection as anything he cut at Bradley’s Barn. It wasn’t like a typical session where everything was perfected,” states Joni Twitty . “But, these songs are an incredible gift, and Daddy was sounding as incredible as he ever did. These recordings make my heart smile, and I think his fans will feel the same way.”
Country Rewind Records has dedicated itself to bring classic country with this contemporary feel to not only the past country fans but also to the new country listeners.
