10/30/16 – Guests Johnny Rodriguez & Sonny Throckmorton
The Frank Brown Songwriters Festival is upon us again this year, so we’ll chat with hit songwriter (understatment of the year!) Sonny Throckmorton. Sonny is a Nashville success story like no other with over 1,000 cuts by artists ranging from Merle Haggard to Chris Young. He was so prolific that during one three year period, there were only 2 weeks without at least one of his songs on the charts. Sonny has won just about every award there is and is a member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Then we’ll visit with pioneering hit songwriter and recording artist, Johnny Rodriguez. Johnny was the very first Mexican-American singer songwriter to hit it big in Country music with over 15 number one singles to his credit and many more top-tens. Hit hits include Ridin’ My Thumb to Mexico, That’s the Way Love Goes and Just Get Up and Close the Door. Johnny is a member of the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame.
