    Although signed as a jazz singer, Mitch Miller worked with him and realized his career was in singing soft ballads.
    It took twenty-one years for his second #1 hit 'Too Much, Too Little, Too Late' (with Deniece Williams).
    His audience is primarily elderly ladies.
    He plays golf, daily.

    He was offered a position on the US 1956 Olympics trials team, but turned it down to pursue his singing career.
    His song 'Chances Are' hit #1.
    In 1958, he was one of the first, if not the first, to put out a Greatest Hits album which is now done by almost all noted artists.
    'Johnny's Greatest Hits' remained on Billboard's Top Albums chart for nearly ten years - 490 continuous weeks.
    He was only one of five artists to have top 40 hits in the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's.
