Tribute to the Grand Ole Opry: Featuring Sherwin Linton with Pam and “The Cotton Kings”

Sherwin Linton learned to accompany his singing while chording on the piano and guitar as a child and, at sixteen, he had his own radio show on KWAT Radio in Watertown, South Dakota. Linton and his band “The Rocketeers” were soon in demand all over eastern South Dakota. Moving to Minneapolis in 1957, Linton formed the “Fender Benders” which became a very popular ballroom and nightclub act that rocked and rolled great audiences from Minnesota to the west coast in the early to mid-sixties. Having had several Rock-A-Billy records successfully released in the mid-west, Linton journeyed to Nashville in 1966 where he cut “Cotton King,” a song that catapulted him to the top of the country music charts. Roy Acuff became aware of Linton’s talents when they toured together in 1968. Acuff introduced Linton to his partner Wesley Rose, who had guided the careers of such luminaries as the Everly Brothers, Roy Orbison and Hank Williams.
