Twitty recorded his version of Bette Midler’s song in 1983 for his album Dream Maker. It quickly hit No. 1 and was his 30th No. 1 on the country charts.
His talk-singing at the beginning of the song is classic Conway and completely legendary. Many singers have including some sing-talk into their music.
“The Rose” became a staple at Twitty’s live shows over the course of his career and is quite possibly his most popular cover song, followed by our next choice as one of Twitty’s best songs ever.
