Further hits followed on Ovation Records with "High And Dry" (1978), "On Business For The King" (1979), "Blue Ribbon Blues" (1979), "Out Of Your Mind" (1979/1980), "What I Had With You" (1980), "Shotgun Rider" (1980), "Bombed, Boozed, And Busted" (1980), and "Ready For the Times to Get Better" (1980), an innovative re-make of Crystal Gayle's 1978 #1 hit. By the time his third album, Livin' On Honky Tonk Time was released, the record company Ovation closed down.

Joe signed with Elektra, who purchased Ovation in 1981. At that time he recorded "I Ain't Honky Tonkin' No More". The album Best of Joe Sun was released by Elektra. Several more albums have followed on Dixiefrog and Crazy Music labels.

His records have been very popular in Europe, which has led to extensive touring overseas. Joe Sun's latest album, Dixie and Me, was released in 2006. All told, he has released 15 albums and continues to be a cult figure among outlaw country and southern rock fans. Read more on Last.fm.
