Sonny Curtis: I Fought The Law
Sonny Curtis is known for writing many songs, however his best known song is probably I Fought The Law. Along with that his set list of songs include: Love Is All Around, The Straight Life, Peggy Sue, Everyday, and More Than I Can Say.
One of Sonny's major influences involved in shaping his music was Elvis!
Sonny's rise to stardom didn't come without a roadblock. He hit on in 1959 when he was drafted in the Army. Sonny used that experience to write Walk Write Back while in basic training.
There have been many artists in many genres covering I Fought The Law. Sonny's favorite rendition though is the cover by hank Williams Jr.
Sonny has received many awards and nominations in his lifetime and writing career. One that I felt important to point out is that he was inducted into the Nashville Songwriter's Hall of Fame!
