“Hello Darlin'” is without a doubt Conway’s signature song. It was both written and recorded by Twitty, and released in 1970 from the album of the same name. It was his fourth #1 single and hit that top spot on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles chart, as well as rocketed to #2 on Canadian RPM Country Tracks. Certified Gold, “Hello Darlin'” was inspired by the other half of his dynamic duo, and long time singing partner, Loretta Lynn.
This popular tune tells the tale of a man that runs into his former lover, telling her he’s been doing just fine, but in reality he cries alone at night. He goes on to tell her that he still loves her, misses her, and is sorry for doing her wrong.
Scotty grew up listening to the classics, so performing a song like “Hello Darlin'” most likely means a whole lot to him. During one of his concerts, he stated what the classics mean to him:
I loved it; I just grew up with it. Nowadays things have changed a little bit. It’s not a good thing or bad thing; everything changes over time. But for me, it does not change the fact that I, Scotty McCreery, still have a love for that kind of music.
That being said, it’s obvious Scotty would try his hardest to pay tribute to Twitty’s signature song – and he did. His performance was absolutely stunning and “Hello Darlin'” deserves nothing but the best. Though no one can sing this song like Conway can, Scotty’s raw talent produces a tune that is a feast for the ears.
