About Sonny Throckmorton...

Sonny Throckmorton

Sonny Throckmorton
 started out as a performer, but instead he became one of the most successful songwriters in country music, with over 1,000 of his songs recorded by an impressive list of artists, including Tanya Tucker, Dave & Sugar, Moe Bandy, Merle Haggard (Tuesday 6 April 1937 - Wednesday 6 April 2016), T.G. Sheppard, Jerry Lee Lewis, John Conlee, The Oak Ridge Boys and Doug Stone.

Sonny Throckmorton was born James Fron 'Sonny' Throckmorton on Wednesday 2 April 1941 in Carlsbad, New Mexico, and spent much of his childhood traveling the American south-west before his family finally settled in Wichita Falls, Texas.

Sonny Throckmorton moved to San Francisco, California after graduating from college, and first played rock & roll before switching his focus to country music at record producer Pete Drake's suggestion.

After graduating from college, Sonny Throckmorton moved to San Francisco and played rock & roll in area clubs.

At the urging of guitarist and publisher Pete Drake (Saturday 8 October 1932 - Friday 29 July 1988), Sonny Throckmorton switched to country music and moved to Nashville in 1964, working as a bass player for Carl Butler (Thursday 2 June 1927 - Friday 4 September 1992) & Pearl Butler (Friday 30 September 1927 - Tuesday 1 March 1988) for two years.

Sonny Throckmorton then wrote for, and managed, Pete Drake's publishing company; his first hit as a songwriter was 'How Long Has It Been', which was a Billboard Top 10 country music hit single for Bobby Lewis.

Sonny Throckmorton remained in Nashville for a few more years as a song promoter and staff writer for different companies before landing a job as a staff writer for the prestigious Sony / Tree Publishing.  Unfortunately, none of the young writer's songs became hit singles, and he was fired.

In 1975, Sonny Throckmorton returned to Texas because he had promised himself that he would quit music if he didn't succeed by the time he was thirty-five years old.

Sonny Throckmorton's fellow songwriters continued trying to sell his songs, however, and six months later, Sonny returned and was re-hired by Sony / Tree Publishing.
