Billy Yates: guestbook

Billy, finally had the opportunity to hear "Only One George Jones" I sadly remember hearing the news of George's passing on the radio. I looked at my wife and said, "You know, there are going to be a lot of great tribute songs to follow." I can't tell you how happy I was that your song was the first EXCELLENT tribute that I got to hear. As always Billy, your music is what keeps country COUNTRY! Thanks from a fellow Missourian!...Alan


May 15, 2013

I thoroughly enjoyed your performance at the Country Music Hall of Fame Singer/Songwriter series on February 16. I love listening to your CD's -- you have the perfect "country singer" voice! Look forward to seeing you again at The Troubadour Theater during Fan Fair.

I grew up with Billy in Doniphan, MO. I know you are upset that George Jones passed away today. I was sad but you knew him personally. Its always hard to lose someone we care about. Im sorry doesn't touch it, but I am

Love your George Jones song !!


March 26, 2013

Billy, I am so tickled that you have found the words and rhythm to honor George Jones with this new upbeat tune... There really is only one George Jones and you always do him proud with your songwriting. Thanks for this new one!

Hi Billy,

I am John and my wife henny, we are coming from The Netherlands to the " Fan Fair. I have a show on my local station and we were on your charity show in 2007, Do you have such a show this year. We would like to come again. Can you please reserve 2 tickets for the show?
Hope to hear from you soon

Hey Billy,
Back in Maine and funny thing is, my house is rolling and I occasionally hit a swell. I'm hoping to be on solid ground by tomorrow.

Meanwhile, would love to by one of each of your cd's. I brought home "Just be You" but already gave as a gift.

Please let me know how to order hard copies.

Still waiting for that technology that will allow me to watch you perform as a hologram anytime I need a fix of Billy Yates live!

Much love,



December 28, 2012

Hey Billy! Happy New Year! Great to see that you're coming back to the UK to play for us again! Really loking forward to it!

What a fantastic show on Wednesday--of the three I have been privileged to attend, this was the best. You have so much of which to be proud--an up and coming talented son, a loving and dedicated wife, a pristine reputation in the country music industry as evidenced by the list of artists who appear on your show, and a very loyal fan base--worldwide. Wow!! It is an honor to be able to attend this great show and project each year. Thanks for allowing Debbie and me to be a part of it.

March 29, 2012

Good morning, Mr. Yates, so good today I hope. Forgot enough to tell you last that we play such one of your many songs called "Dreaming Out Loud". Are you a little curious how you like it ....? :-) Then you can listen on YouTube, search "Hacienda Country Band" and there you will find your song "Dreaming Out Loud" performed by an amateur band and filmed by a mobile phone :-))

Have a good day
/ Benny Troll Hjelm


March 28, 2012

Hi again Billy, I forgot to say that the recording is made only with the camera phone, hence the less good sound ... but you can listen to it :-) This is our debut gig, and we'll be Haciendas house band. Hope we also get to meet you some day, would have been fun! Maybe next time there will be a forum in Germany ...

Best Regards
/ Benny Drummer


March 28, 2012

Hey Billy, check out the Here you can see an old friend of yours who plays steel guitar. You met in Germany to a country forum. He (Bert Göransson) is a very big fan of yours Billy and we play some of your tunes in our newly established HCB (Hacienda Country Band). Bert also plays with Highway 40, although they are from Sweden.

Have a good day wish Benny Troll Hjelm, drummer in the band :-)

How much longer before the lineup for the "Countriest of Country" show will be provided?
I've been one time before and it was the best night we had in Nashville!!!
Would like to come again IF we like the folks appearing. I'm sure it will probably be great though!!

September 19, 2011

Hi Billy! I enjoyed seeing you at Breim, Norway. It's clear that you are a friend of Norway, like you express in "the Norway song". Letting the fans sing "Choices" in Norwegian was really cool. Your performance was just amazing. I love your music and the way you sing it.
I hope to see you in Norway again soon.

Thank you for the great concert at the Four Corners Saloon - Untermeitingen/Germany!!!

It was an extraordinary experience for us to see you singing live in concert!
We drove more than 6 hours und over 400 miles to go there, and all the time we listened to the songs of 6 of your recent cds playing them on and on ... and later on enjoying your concert you gave us great pleasure to hear some of our favorites live on stage - it was overwhelming!

Next day on our way back home we listend to your latest 2 cds (wich we bought there) playing them all the time.
That was our great Billy-Yates-weekend we´ll never forget. Thank you for your kindness (staying in the same hotel next morning we met eachother at the breakfirst room) and your great music!
With warm regards

Hopefully we will be able to take a trip to Nashville, and it would be great if we could meet you there. You gave us a marvellous show and getting the audience to sing "Choises" in Norwegian at the end , must have been special for you. Give my regards to your family and to Georgette if you meet her, she was a fantastic women, so easy to talk to, and a great performer of her mother's songs.

June 27, 2011

Hey Billy,

Congratulations on your 6th #1 Single with Stuart Cameron and the HotDisc. I read your Bio and how you walked away from the record labels to start your own.

I love the fact that you make REAL Country music and realized Nashville wasn't really interested in helping you.

I was so disgusted with my first trip to Nashville back in 98', that I basically lost any interest in becoming a recording artist before I ever really got started.

In closing, great to see you are succeeding on your the name of your record

Life has taught me that if you want something done, you are ALWAYS better off doing it yourself. I would trust you have learned the same and are happy with your decision to do things your way.

Good luck and continued success,

T. Paul Matson

We can't tell you how much we enjoyed the "Countriest of the Country" Show this year. We actually drove down from Delaware just to see your show. We didn't even stay for the CMA show.I sure miss "Fan Fair".
Sorry we didn't get a chance to meet with all of you. We had to travel early the next day. Be sure to let us know about next year's show. We wouldn't miss it.

Perfect song. Norway.....

Jack Wells -- Dexter, Missouri

May 30, 2011

Hi Billy: I've heard a little of your music on the radio the last few years since I've lived here in SE MO, and have always enjoyed it, but since I found your terrific internet site I was just blown away with "The Norway Song" & some of the others as well, & ordered the CD immediately; can't hardly wait 'til it gets here! I'm in my 60's & have been a Real Country music fan for most of those years & it's really nice to know that there are still a few people like yourself out there doing it! I just recently found Royal Wade Kimes; don't know if you know him or not, but he's a lot like you & I enjoy his music a lot too. Anyway, I guess I've rambled on about long enough here, but you take care, and hope I can maybe see you in person sometime here in the area & maybe get to meet you. You've got a new good fan in me & my girlfriend too! Sincerely, Jack Wells - Dexter MO

Last time you were there you helped me with the lyrics of "Daddy's radio". A hot tip for you: you must perform "Lone Ranger" at Breim, this song is very populare in Norway by a Norwegian band
