Whatever Happened To Joe Sun

In May of 1978 a record was released called ‘Old Flames (Can’t Hold A Candle To You). The song had a kind of Country/Soul flavor to it, different than just about anything else that was being released in Country Music at the time. We all lovedit and it became a nationwide country hit.

The artist? His name was (and is) Joe Sun.

 

 

Joe was born just down the road a piece from here, in Rochester Minnesota. After college and the Air Force, Joe made his way to Nashville in 1972. After ‘Old Flames’ hit, his record label, Ovation, closed down and Joe signed with a new label. To date, he hasn’t been able to duplicate the success of ‘Old Flame’.

But that doesn’t mean he hasn’t been busy. He has released some 15 albums and plays in the United States and Europe. At 70, Joe Sun is alive and well and continuing on with his creative, artistic life.
