Johnny MacRae, who penned several hit country songs that you know and love, such as Conway Twitty's No. 1 track 'I'd Just Love to Lay You Down' and Reba McEntire's '(You Lift Me) Up to Heaven,' as well as Doug Stone's 'I'd Be Better Off (In a Pine Box),' died on Wednesday, July 3.
Over the years, when I've asked you who you'd like to hear on the "Country Classic Double" weekdays at 11:30 a.m. , Conway Twitty always tops the list. We'll begin this morning's Double with "You've Never Been This Far Before", Conway Twitty's number one country song on this day back in 1973.
John Hughey was a true Nashville legend. A steel guitar virtuoso Hughey backed Conway Twitty for years before joing Vince Gill's back up band where he stayed for nearly 20 years. Now Vince has recorded a musical salute to Hughey, who died in 2007, and included it on his latest album "Guitar Slinger". Vince says that Hughey's musical and personal story lent itself perfectly to a country song.
From time to time, I get feedback about artists you'd like to hear on the "Country Classic Double", weekdays at 11:30 a.m. One name keeps coming up is Conway Twitty. So, today he'll lead of the Double with his number 1 hit from 1973: "You've Never Been This Far Before".
