Sherwin & Pam Linton & The Cotton Kings this Friday Under the Bridge at 7pm!

An Entertainer’s Entertainer, Mr. Versatility, Mid America’s Number One Entertainer, A Nationally Unknown Superstar, Mid-America’s Country Music Legend, The Greatest Show On Earth. These are a few of the clichés and phrases that have been used to attempt to describe what the name Sherwin Linton has meant to his fans, his friends, and his peers. Sherwin 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. Sherwin and his band “The Rocketeers” were soon in demand all over eastern South Dakota. Moving to Minneapolis in 1957, he soon 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, Sherwin journeyed to Nashville in 1966 where he cut “Cotton King”, a song that catapulted him to the top of the Country music charts!
