About the artist and the song:
Bobby Goldsboro (born January 18, 1941) is an American country and pop singer-songwriter. He had a string of pop and country hits in the 1960s and 1970s, including his signature No. 1 hit "Honey," which sold over one million copies in the United States.
"Honey," also known as "Honey (I Miss You)," is a song written by Bobby Russell. He first produced it with former Kingston Trio member Bob Shane. Then he gave it to Bobby Goldsboro who recorded it for his tenth album Honey.
The song was released as a single in the U.S. in 1968 and spent five weeks at #1 the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart, from April 7 to May 11 (the 200th song to do so), and three weeks atop Billboard's Hot Country Singles chart. It was preceded on the Billboard Hot 100 by "(Sittin' on) the Dock of the Bay" by Otis Redding and was followed by Archie Bell & the Drells' "Tighten Up." It was Goldsboro's only #1 hit on the Pop Singles and Country Singles charts and it was his first song to top the Adult Contemporary chart. "Honey" reached #2 on the UK Singles Chart and a re-release of the single in England in 1975 (see 1975 in music) reached #2 again. In Australia, it spent four weeks at #1 on the ARIA Charts, replacing The Beatles' "Lady Madonna", and was the #6 song of 1968.
