Country music cherishes family tradition and Michael Twitty is an integral part of that great heritage. He is the oldest son of rock and country legend Conway Twitty. Born November 25 in Helena Arkansas, Michael is not only carrying on his father’s celebrated legacy, he is making a mark of his own. Although Michael Twitty spent much of his early life following the footsteps of his father and other musical greats, one of Michael’s earliest memories was of riding a paddle wheel ferry boat down the Mississippi that was captained by his Papaw. His adored Mamaw loving instilled in him the values and integrity that are so important to Michael Twitty. But by age eight music had overtaken his life and Michael found himself under the spotlight on stage with his legendary father. Michael knew right then that this was where he wanted to spend the rest of his life.
To Michael Twitty, entertaining an audience has become just as easy as having a conversation with friends.
