Just thought I would take the time to share a brilliant song by my good friend Billy Curtis. Have a listen to a wonderful artist. There is some info on Billy below the audio player.
Billy started playing the Guitar at the tender age of five and, by the time he had hit nineteen, he was already a respected professional musician.
He spent six years as a soloist, honing his craft on the road where his experiences proved to be invaluable for his career as a performer. At 25, Billy toured the UK for six months with the highly acclaimed ‘Stringband’ before forming his own band, ‘B.J. Curtis & Nashville Express’ – (later to become the ‘B. J. Curtis Band’). After extensive touring of the UK Country Club scene, B.J. Curtis & Nashville Express achieved major national recognition by winning the British Country Music Awards accolade of ‘Rising Star of 1997’. By this time, Billy had 3 albums under his belt and his début solo video performance was being featured on Sky TV’s ‘CMT Europe’.
January 1998 marked a significant change in Billys career. With the final dissolution of the band, Billy decided to take time out from touring to concentrate on song writing and recording. After producing some great new original material Billy signed with a new management company and returned to the Country music circuit as a solo artist. His popularity soon grew with his exhaustive repertoire of dance favourites and January 2002 saw him being featured on the front cover of Line Dancer Magazine (pictured ) heralding his acceptance on the British line dance scene.
