RECORDED ON THIS DAY IN 1968

The song "Honey," also known as "Honey (I Miss You)," was written by
Bobby Russell. He first produced it with former Kingston Trio member
Bob Shane. Then he gave it to singer Bobby Goldsboro, who recorded
it for his 1968 album of the same name. It spent five weeks at No. 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 Goldsboro’s only No. 1 hit on the Pop Singles and Country Singles
charts and it was his first song to top the Adult Contemporary chart. The
single was ranked the No. 3 song for 1968 by Billboard.


Bobby Goldsboro turned 75 on January 18.
