Somebody's Knockin' by Terri Gibbs (1981)

Somebody's Knockin' by Terri Gibbs (1981)
"Somebody's Knockin'" is the debut single of American country music singer Terri Gibbs. It was released in late 1980 from her debut album, Somebody's Knockin'. It was co-written by Jerry Gillespie and Ed Penney. Penney was a record company executive who liked Gibbs's voice when he first heard her audition tape, but felt she needed stronger material. Penney was a former Boston disc jockey who had promoted records and written a number of songs before moving to Nashville. He was the producer of "Somebody's Knockin'" and became Terri Gibbs's manager.
