B.J. Thomas straddled the line between pop/rock and country, achieving success in both genres in the late '60s and '70s. At the beginning of his career, he leaned more heavily on rock & roll, but by the mid-'70s, he had turned to country music, becoming one of the most successful country-pop stars of the decade. His first big success came with a cover of Hank Williams' "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" that hit the Top Ten in 1966. By the end of the '60s, he scored his biggest hit with Burt Bacharach and Hal David's "Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head," a chart-topper taken from the hit film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. After a string of soft rock hits, Thomas hit a dry period at his new label, Paramount, and moved to ABC to pursue a new country-pop direction. "(Hey Won't You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song," his first single for the label, became his second number one record on the pop charts. For the next decade he continued to perform well on the country charts, including two mid-'80s number ones — "Whatever Happened to Old Fashioned Love" and "New Looks From an Old Lover." He also recorded a number of hit gospel records for Myrrh. The hits began to dry up at the end of the '80s, but he continued to tour and record occasionally.
