Ever since he first popped up in bluegrass circles in 2016, Billy’s songs won him critical praise for their insightful lyrics, unpredictable rhythms, and fresh, unconventional melodies. His first solo bluegrass project also hit that year, and grassers fell in love with his singing voice. Country music fans had embraced him a few years earlier when he filled the lead vocalist role with Shenandoah while Marty Raybon was working in bluegrass.
