** Happened ''twice'' with "Why Baby Why," his first chart hit. It went to #4, but started falling when Red Sovine and Webb Pierce released a duet version that went to #1 and blunted the chart run of Jones' original. CharleyPride later had a #1 hit with his own 1983 rendition.


Added DiffLines:

* FirstAndForemost: Although his version of "Why Baby Why" was blunted on the charts by Red Sovine and Webb Pierce's #1 version (followed swiftly by ''another'' version by Hank Locklin), and Charley Pride later had a #1 hit with it again in 1983, it's still thought of as mainly Jones's song.
