As a teenager, Tom organized a band called, “The Kentucky Travelers”. They performed prior to the showing of movies for a traveling theatre. He also had several stints as a DJ at radio stations in West Virginia. His first songwriting break came when Jimmy C. Newman recorded his song, “DJ For a Day”.
Tom has written songs for dozens of country artists, including twelve number ones and two dozen more in the top ten.
“Harper Valley PTA” was a cross-over hit, nearing top ten on the Hot 100 chart.
