But history was made in 1971 when two of the biggest stars in country music history found each other and teamed up for some of the most memorable and classic country music ever recorded. Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty went into the studio and from the first song, something special emerged.
The duo had five consecutive Number 1 hits. Some of the songs you will remember and love include Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man, "As Soon as I Hang Up the Phone", and "After the Fire Is Gone".
