BJ Thomas owns one of the most distinctive voices in American pop music-a reassuringly masculine timbre conveyed with a smattering of unique embellishments that represent a distillation of the most influential genres in pop culture.
“We’ve always tried to do the right thing as far as getting our music out and encouraging people with positive music,” B.J. reflects. Indeed, many of B.J.’s signature hits-the Oscar-winning Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head, the million-selling (Hey Won’t You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song and his career-igniting cover of Hank Williams’ I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry-invariably find the plots’ protagonists employing some level of positivity to overcome the universal battle with loneliness.
With over 70 million records sold, BJ’s vocal versatility is as apparent today as it was when he recorded his first hit in 1967, “I’m so Lonesome I Could Cry”.
Since the mid-1960s, BJ Thomas has become one of the most recognized and respected voices of the American musical landscape. He has impacted many areas of popular music with 15 Top 40 pop hits, 10 Top 40 country hits, 5 Grammys, 2 Dove awards and 15 Gold and Platinum Records. He is the only artist to successfully move to the top of three music genres not as a crossover and also have crossover success.
