Irwin Levine and Larry Brown began writing songs together in 1970. They had 17 hits in just three years, including the overwhelming success of this happy melody about an ex-convict coming home to his love. The song was one of the most performed tunes of 1973 and the first song in the history of BMI  ( Broadcast Music, Inc., an American performing rights society ) to be played more than a million times on the air in less than a year. In all, there have been more than 400 separate recorded versions of Tie a Yellow Ribbon one of the biggest was by Country artist Johnny Carver and another by Tony Orlando and Dawn, who made it into a hugely successful hit.
