Description

Not a bad way to start a Country chart career: write yourself a smash number one hit which is enviously copied by numerous other artists. That is exactly what George Morgan did in 1949 with "Candy Kisses".George had written and was performing "Candy Kisses" in 1948, before he had gained a record contract, and it was this song which led Columbia to sign him ahead of rivals RCA. His first record release, it became a million-seller and the Country hit of 1949, in the process beating off cover versions from established artists like Elton Britt, Red Foley and Cowboy Copas. No surprise that George named his first daughter Candy! Success not only brought a welcome stream of royalties, it gave him a place at the "Grand Ole Opry" and he was quickly established as a Country star. However, after 1949 the hits were slow in coming and he had to wait until 1952 before a number two strike with "Almost". The future pattern was set: another hit in 1953, nothing until 1957, and following that a number three in 1959 with "I'm In Love Again".
