Billy’s finger style acoustic guitar playing is reminiscent of James Taylor, and is percussive in nature. “I’ve never heard so much music coming from one man and one guitar. He’s the best I’ve ever seen”, says award winning producer/songwriter Monty Powell.
No matter what venue he performs in, large or small, with his band or just solo, Billy’s charismatic charm and approachable personality puts you, the listener, in an intimate living room setting, where he touches every emotional nerve, leaving you musically nourished with a renewed Spirit. He has sold over 4 million albums with 11 top ten hit singles and 4 number one country hits.
