"Honky Tonk" is a rhythm and blues instrumental written by Billy Butler, Bill Doggett, Clifford Scott, and Shep Shepherd. Doggett recorded it as a two-part single in 1956.[1] It peaked at number two for three weeks on the Billboard Hot 100,[2] and was the biggest R&B hit of the year, spending thirteen non-consecutive weeks at the top of the charts.[3][4] "Honky Tonk" became Doggett's signature piece and an R&B standard recorded by many other performers.
