Whatever Happened To Freddie Hart?

If a country music artist has 5 #1 hit’s in just 2 years, that would be considered fantastic.

But if you add 1 sixth #1 hit to those 5, and that one was the CMA song of the 2 years in a row…well, now you’re talking an all-time legend.

And you’re talking Freddie Hart.

Freddie was born Frederick Segrest, the son of a poor sharecropper in Alabama. At the age of 12 he quit school and at the age of 15 he lied about his age and joined the United States Marines.

Freddie served during World War II, seeing combat in both Guam and at Iwo Jima.

Freddie wrote hit song’s for other major artist’s in the 1950′s and 1960′s, but it was 1971 that was the magic year for Freddie Hart.

‘Easy Lovin’ was Freddie’s first number one hit and became one of the biggest hit’s in country music history.  It was named the Country Music Association Song of The Year 2 years in a row, both 1971 and 1972!

But there were 5 more #1 hit’s for Freddie, including ‘My Hang Up Is You’ and ‘Trip To Heaven’.  Along with his many other hits, these songs made Freddie Hart a huge name in classic country music.

So whatever happened to Freddie Hart?

Well, at the age of 86 Freddie is alive and well and still occasionally performs.  And I’ll bet each of those occasional performances includes the country standard ‘Easy Lovin’.
