Country music singer Conway Twitty performed "The Rose" before he passed away, and this legendary performance still captivated his fans around the world.


During a concert in 1992, Twitty performed his hit song, "The Rose." That was the very last time he sang this notable tune in front of an audience.

The country music world was reeling when he died on June 4, 1993, due to an abdominal aortic aneurysm. He was 59 years old.

Twitty turned out to be sick while performing at the Jim Stafford Theater in Branson, Missouri.

The legendary singer, who was married four times, to three different women, collapsed and was immediately taken to a hospital. However, he died in the early hours of the morning the following day.

In January 1983, Twitty recorded his version of "The Rose," which was his 30th number one on the country chart.

Originally recorded by Bette Midler, the legendary song was for the soundtrack of 1979 film, "The Rose."


But the song wasn't really composed for the motion picture. Amanda McBroom penned it, and she stated:

"I wrote it in 1977 [or] 1978, and I sang it occasionally in clubs. ... Jim Nabors had a local talk show, and I sang ["The Rose"] on his show once."

As per the lyricist, she composed the tune in light of her manager's proposal that she writes "some Bob Seger-type tunes." McBroom obliged and composed "The Rose" within forty-five minutes.

Twitty's rendition of the song was a part of his album, "Dream Maker," which was a number one country hit in US and Canada.

The award-winning singer was known in the music industry as "The Best Friend a Song Ever Had." He had a profession that spanned over 50 years.


In 1958, Twitty, who was born Harold Lloyd Jenkins on September 1, 1933, shot to fame after his song, "It's Only Make Believe," went number one. His versatile voice eventually made the shift from rock to country.
