BJ Thomas owns one of the most distinctive voices in American pop music. Nothing about the identifiable sound of B.J. Thomas’ voice has changed, but there’s a re-energized commitment behind it.
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,” along with a couple of his signature hits, the Oscar-winning Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head and the million-selling song (Hey Won’t You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song.
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.
