Whatever Happened To Terri Gibbs?
Back in 1981, right in the middle of Merle Haggard and Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers and Ronnie Milsap, Conway Twitty and Charley Pride came a new song…a song you couldn’t help but turn up and listen to.
‘Somebody’s Knockin’, should I let him in? Lord it’s the devil, would you look at him…’
Wow, what a great song! Who is that???
Her name was (and is) Terri Gibbs and ‘Somebody’s Knockin’ became not only a huge Country hit, but crossed over and became a big Pop hit as well.
Born blind, Terri was raised in Augusta, Georgia and like so many great country artist’s, first began singing in the choir at her church.
Her first single release? Yep, it was ‘Somebody’s Knockin’ and wow what a hit it was.
Terri was never able to follow up that smash single, but released much more music and in fact, shifted her focus to contemporary christian music in the late 1980’s.
At the age of 61 Terri is the widowed mother of one son.
