Way back before he was a country music legend, Conway Twitty was just a young buck trying to make music.

 When he was just 24 years old, Twitty changed his name from Harold Jenkins to Conway Twitty and signed with MGM Records. His first single ever released was "I'll Try" with "It's Only Make Believe" on the B-side. A radio station in Ohio had an idea to play the B-side instead of the A-side, and the song took off!

Because of vocal similarities, many listeners thought "It's Only Make Believe" was an Elvis Presley song, until he made his first ever television appearance. 

Performing on Perry Como's Kraft Music Hall in 1958, the world was finally introduced to the man who provided the gravelly vocals on the hit song that reached No. 1 in three different countries and sold over eight million copies.

Wearing a dapper suit and tie with his hair perfectly coifed, Twitty debuted his incredible vocal talent that made him a country music legend. While this song wasn't country, and neither were his next few releases, he had always wanted to sing country music and began doing so in 1965.

Ladies, be prepared to swoon while watching this performance because the women in the audience that day were doing just that! 

Watch his first TV performance below.
