Freddie Hart

"Freddie Hart" (b. Freddie Segrest, Dec. 21, 1926, in Loachapoka, Alabama) is an American country musician. He is best known for his hit song "Easy Loving" which won the Country Music Association Song of the Year award two years in a row, in 1971 and 1972.

Hart and his backup band, the Heartbeats, had hits with "Bless Your Heart" (#1 in 1972), "If You Can't Feel It (It Ain't There)" (1973), "Super Kind of Woman" (#1 in 1973), "Trip to Heaven" (#1 in 1973) and "The First Time" (1975).
