Sonny Throckmorton Was One Of Country Music’s Greatest Songwriters

He’s had more than 1,000 of his songs recorded by the biggest names in country music.  And I mean the biggest names.

Merle HaggardGeorge Strait.  The Oak Ridge BoysJohn ConleeJerry Lee Lewis.  And way to many more to name.  Basically, just throw a dart at all the biggest names in country music since about the early 1970′s and yep, they’ve recorded one (or many!) of this guys songs.

Sonny Throckmorton.

In 1975 alone, Sonny had 150 of his songs recorded in just nine months!  And they were some of the biggest songs of those years, or any years.

Sonny wrote Johnny Duncan‘s first #1 hit ‘Thinkin’ Of A Rendezvous’.

To name just a few more of his songs…’Tryin’ To Love Two Women’, ‘I Wish You Could Have Turned My Head (And Left My Heart Alone)’, ‘Friday Night Blues’, ‘If We’re Not Back In Love By Monday’, ‘The Cowboy Rides Away’ and T.G. Sheppard (seen and heard here) ‘The Last Cheaters Waltz’.

As I said, there’s hundreds more.

Sonny was elected to the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1985 and essentially retired to Texas in 1988.

Sonny Throckmorton is 72.
