Biography

Nathan Stuckey (December 17, 1933, Cass County, Texas – August 24, 1988) was an American country singer. He recorded for various labels between 1966 and 1978, charting in the top 10 of Hot Country Songs with “Sweet Thang”, “Plastic Saddle”, “Sweet Thang and Cisco” and “Take Time to Love Her”.

Raised in Atlanta, Texas, in Cass County, Nat Stuckey attended Arlington State College, where he earned a radio and television degree. Nat established himself as a radio announcer, first at Radio Station KALT in Atlanta, Texas, then at Radio Station KWKH in Shreveport, Louisiana. While at KWKH, Nat became a member of the Louisiana Hayride and the last major act with beginning roots from the Hayride.
He became a hit songwriter after he co-wrote Buck Owens’ number-one single “Waitin’ in Your Welfare Line” in 1965. Following this song, Stuckey wrote and recorded “Sweet Thang” on Paula Records.
Another of Stuckey’s compositions, “Pop a Top”, was recorded by Jim Ed Brown on RCA Records in 1967. A year later, Stuckey signed with RCA himself. Among his hits for RCA were “Plastic Saddle” and “Sweet Thing and Cisco”.

Stuckey teamed with Connie Smith on the duet of “Young Love”, followed by another single and two albums. The duo was in the final nominations for a Grammy for their version of “Whispering Hope”.
After seven years with RCA, Stuckey signed with MCA Records. With Conway Twitty and David Barnes producing, his single “Sun Comin’ Up” made the top 20, but none of his other MCA releases did. He last charted in 1978 with the number 26 single “The Days of Sand and Shovels”.
