While he was with RCA and under the production guidance of Chet Atkins and Felton Jarvis Willie Nelson released "Johnny One Time" (Frazier - Owens) in July.
At four feet nine inches, Brenda Lee (Tarpley) is unique with the number of hits she supplied the world of country and popular music. In 1968, three months after Willie's record, she issued "Johnny One Time" reaching the top five on the Adult Contemporary chart and top fifty on the pop charts. The song is on the album of the same name. This song is unusual because it was recorded in NYC instead of at one of her usual Nashville sessions. Chuck Berry composed a song for her and some of her hits were featured as a medley on Duane Eddy's album "Girls, Girls, Girls".
