Earl Thomas Conley - What I'd Say

4y ago


Tickets: ---- Earl Thomas Conley (born October 17, 1941, in Washington, Ohio) is an American country music singer and composer. Between 1980 and 2003, he recorded ten studio albums, including seven for the RCA Records label. In the 1980s and into the 1990s, Conley also charted more than thirty singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, of which eighteen reached Number One. When Conley was 14, his father lost his job, forcing the young boy to move in with his older sister. He was offered a scholarship to an art school, but rejected it in favor of joining the U.S. Army. After being honorably discharged from the military, he began playing in clubs in Nashville, Tennessee, at night, supporting himself working blue-collar jobs during the day. Feeling that he wasn't making any progress in Nashville, Conley moved to Huntsville, Alabama to work in a steel mill. There, he met record producer Nelson Larkin, who helped him sign with independent record label GRT in 1974. Conley released four singles on that label, none of which became large hits. At the same time, he was selling songs that he had written to other artists, including Conway Twitty and Mel Street, who were having much success with them. Conley returned to Nashville, now writing for Nelson Larkin's publishing house. In 1979, he signed a recording contract with Warner Bros. Records. Two years later, he had his first Top 40 hit, "Dreamin's All I Do". He left the label in 1979 and joined Sunbird Records, where he again worked with Nelson Larkin. This time, Conley found success, with a Top Ten and a Number One single within the next two years. He continued to have success over the next few years, and in 1983, he was nominated for multiple Grammy Awards for his song "Holdin' Her and Lovin' You". He set a record the following year as the first artist in any genre to have four Number One singles from the same album. Conley also appeared on Soul Train in 1986, the first and only country artist to do so. By the end of the 1980s, Conley began collaborating with Randy Scruggs (son of legendary country singer Earl Scruggs), in the hopes that he could bring his music back to his country roots. His record sales began to drop in the 1990s, as country music took a more pop turn, and Conley was dropped from his record label in 1991. He continued to tour throughout the 1990s, but was without a recording contract for most of that time. He began recording again in 1998. - Extra Tags: kamen rider double selena gomez michelle kwan puppy cam screen actors guild awards soulja boy justin timberlake halleluja modern warfare 2 care package glitch jersey shore linkin park ke$ha blah blah blah legend of the seeker soulja boy wtf say something drake monique sag juan manuel lopez blog gloggster glog glogster youtube br bathroom php html beautiful new newest hr index.of index of intitle xampp wampp js javascript hypertext markup language sweet candy chocolate circut city vcc paypal alert pap alertpay googly yahoo jj55 jerry jer jery toggle haiti haiti haiti 90999 red cross bill earthquake nation donate donation 10 ten dollars 5 iphone ipid touch itouch ipodtouch keyboard best buy skater nation skaternation gameloft psp god of war tutorial hack crack glitch THE USE OF ANY COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL IS USED UNDER THE GUIDELINES OF "FAIR USE" IN TITLE 17 § 107 OF THE UNITED STATES CODE.
