1957 Teresa Brewer – Empty Arms

Here’s another song written by Ivory Joe Hunter! He released his own single in 1957, but in spite of reaching #2 on the R&B chart, the record peaked at only #41 on the Hot 100.

Teresa Brewer was there to help with her own cover version. Her single reached #13 on the Hot 100 in 1957. She again reached the top ten later that year when she covered Sam Cooke’s You Send Me. That release became her last top thirty single.

Fourteen years later, Sonny James had a chart-topping Country hit with the song that barely reached #91 on the Hot 100.
