OBSCURE ORIGINATORS DEPT:
SONNY WILLIAMS

 


Country music singer, songwriter and bandleader Sonny Williams was probably little known outside of Wisconsin. He was a hard-working live performer over many years in Milwaukee and other cities.

In 1958 he released a song by Chicago songwriter Frank McNulty that he recorded with an all-star studio band in Nashville. It wasn't a hit for Sonny, although it charted modestly in Milwaukee when he re-recorded it there in 1973.

The song became better known in Australia when it was recorded by Col Joye for his first single in 1959. It was one of his biggest hits, now a classic Australian oldie. Find out more at this page.
