Talent must run in the Twitty family! Like his grandfather Conway Twitty, Tre Twitty is extremely gifted, and blew us away by his performance of "Don't Cry Joni" at Loretta Lynn's ranch, with fellow singer Emily Portman.
"Don't Cry Joni" was released in 1975 from Conway's album, High Priest of Country Music. The duet was a success because it featured Conway's 16-year-old daughter Joni Lee Jenkins. The father/daughter duet peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart, and was one of only two successful duets that Conway did without Loretta Lynn.
The song tells the timeless story of young love between a man and woman who can't be together. Joni writes a letter to her neighbor Jimmy telling him she loves him and asking him to wait for her. Jimmy knows they can never be together, so he goes to tell Joni the sad news. Poor Joni is heartbroken and brought to tears. Fifteen years later, Jimmy still thinks of Joni and decides he needs to find her. When he does, he confesses his love for her but Joni has bad news, she has moved on and married his best friend. Wow! That has to be the saddest love story we have ever heard!
Tre does a great job carrying on his grandfather's legacy. Although there will never be another Conway Twitty, it is nice to hear a similar voice, especially in the family! Conway would be so proud!
