We lost the incredibly talented Conway Twitty at the young age of 59. Fun fact: He was born as Harold Lloyd Jenkins. Reports on how he came up with "Conway Twitty" are varied. Some say the singer randomly chose words he saw on a map, while others say he met a real man with that name.

Patsy Cline (1932 - 1963) -- Sept. 8
