Conway Twitty was born as Harold Lloyd Jenkins in Friars Point, Mississippi,
on September 1, 1933, to Floyd Jenkins and Velma. He was named after the
famous ‘silent movie’ actor, Harold Lloyd, by his great-uncle.
At the age of ten, Jenkins moved to Helena, Arkansas, with his family where
he formed his first singing group named ‘Phillips County Ramblers’.
At the age of twelve, he had his own local radio show every Saturday
morning. He also started playing baseball as a teenager. He got an
opportunity to play for the ‘Philadelphia Phillies’ after he completed his
high school; however, he was drafted into the United States Army where he
formed a group ‘Cimmerons’ and performed for his fellow soldiers.
Allegedly, in 1957, Jenkins decided that his real name was not memorable enough and sought a better show business name. In The Billboard Book of Number One Hits, Fred Bronson states that the singer was looking at a road map when he spotted Conway, Arkansas, and Twitty, Texas, and chose the name Conway Twitty.
