Billy moved to Nashville in 1989 to pursue a career in country music at a time when country music was on the verge of a major transformation. In the fall of 1990, he signed a recording contract with MCA Nashville through a production company in California. In the spring of 1992, his debut cd, “Too Country” was released to much fanfare, but the following year he was released from his contract; country music had changed as acts like Garth Brooks and Brooks and Dunn fused pop and country and ruled the airwaves.
Billy continued to play his brand of traditional country at dancehalls and nightclubs for the next several years until he decided to take a brief hiatus from music…
Nearly 25 years later, Billy began writing and recording again and says, “… it’s as if all this living just had to come out and I think this new collection of songs is the best material I’ve ever written.”
He hopes you will agree.
