The song followed her chart-topping 'Coal Miner's Daughter' and the 'After The Fire Is Gone' duet with Conway Twitty, another No. 1.
'Hallelujah, I Love Her So,' the last hit that Eddie was able to see climbing the UK charts, entered the bestsellers on 22 January 1960.
It was not so much 'I Just Called To Say I Love You' as the opposite, on the melodramatic 'As Soon As I Hang Up The Phone.'
'Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain' is the song that connects Gene with Willie Nelson, Elvis Presley and a host of others.
Roy Orbison, Rick Nelson, Jerry Lee Lewis and many more covered Hank's 'You Win Again.'
