Adams and Reese congratulates Nashville Music Row office client Sonny Curtis, who wrote “I Fought The Law,” which has been chosen as one of this year’s 27 inductees into the GRAMMY Hall of Fame. The song was performed by Bobby Fuller Four in 1965.
The 27 new honorees bring the total number of titles in the GRAMMY Hall of Fame to 987. The GRAMMY Hall Of Fame was established by The Recording Academy's National Trustees in 1973 to honor recordings of lasting qualitative or historical significance that are at least 25 years old. The 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards will take place on Sunday, Feb. 8, 2015, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Curtis also wrote the Mary Tyler Moore theme song, “Walk Right Back” by the Everly Brothers, and “I’m No Stranger to the Rain” by Keith Whitley.
He was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1991, the Musicians Hall of Fame as a member of The Crickets (Buddy Holly’s band and the backup band to the Everly Brothers) and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.
