Conway Twitty

Your grandma wanted to fuck Conway Twitty.

Everyone’s grandma did. Deal with it.

Conway Twitty (obviously not his real name) decided to start making music after hearing Elvis Presley. His first hit single, 1958’s “It’s Only Make Believe,” sounds so much like Elvis that a lot of people (apparently) thought it was Elvis recording under a fake name. Perhaps the absurdity of the name Conway Twitty fueled these rumors.

Always a fan of country music, Conway made the jump in the mid-60s and never had a reason to look back. The only singer with more #1 songs in country is George Strait. Most of Conway’s hits were about how he did, would or could fuck your grandma just the way she wanted. And you got the impression he’d even stick around to cuddle and talk afterward.
