Kitty Wells -- She was a thirty-three-year-old wife and mother when her 1952 recording of “It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels” suddenly made her a star. She went on to accumulate thirty-five Billboard Top Ten records and eighty-one charted singles.
Conway Twitty -- country music star whose name I always figured had to be his real one, because who would choose that name, right? Nope, he had a perfectly nice real name (Harold Lloyd Jenkins): 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. Wikipedia
