American country-western singer, songwriter and philosopher. A nice looking white youth, Earl was the son of a railroad man who was mostly out of work and the family was on the breadline. From the time he was a kid, Earl was bringing in money from his artistic work, before he joined the army.
After his discharge, he began singing in Alabama clubs, writing his own songs. In 1978 he added Thomas to his name. By the '80s, he was one of the most successful country stars, singing his own material.
Between 1980 and 2003, he recorded ten studio albums, including seven for the RCA Records label. In the 1980s and into the 1990s, Conley also charted more than 30 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, of which 18 reached Number One. Conley's 18 Billboard Number One country singles during the 1980s marked the most Number One hits by any artist in any genre during that decade except for Alabama and Ronnie Milsap.
Conley died in Nashville on 10 April 2019, aged 77, from complications of dementia.
