Toby Keith’s “The Last Thing on My Mind,” a reworking of Tom Paxton’s “The Last Thing on My Mind,” hit the national Top 10 in January 1968, beginning a six-year run.
This song was Parton’s first solo record for RCA Victor and reached number 17 in the summer of 1968. Aside from the chart-topping “In the Good Old Days (When Times Were Bad)”, she never had a solo hit as big as her duets with Wagoner.
ACM Vocal Group of the Year in 1968, while Parton’s solo records were routinely ignored. In 1969, Wagoner was Parton’s co-producer and owned almost half of Owe-Par, the publishing company she co-founded with Bill Owens.
