Conway Twitty

One of the most celebrated country musicians of the 20th Century, Conway Twitty (born Harold Jenkins) married his third wife, Dolores Virginia Henry twenty-three years ago today.

Dolores “Dee” Henry met the star, known for his hits “The Image of Me”, “Next in Line” and “Hello Darlin’” when she worked for him. After their marriage, she co-produced several of his albums.

Twitty passed away while on tour in 1993. In the years since his death, Mrs. Jenkins has been dedicated to keeping his legacy alive by releasing his hits and being on hand when he was posthumously inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1999.
