SOLD OUT SHOWS IN EUROPE AND THE UK - July 19, 2013

The tour began in Kolding Denmark and ended in Pentney, England, with a total of 7 shows, all to capacity crowds. This marks 10 years of touring abroad for Billy and the ball only gains momentum!

In Mirande, France, well over 10,000 fans experienced Billy's style of country as he headlined the Friday night show. Also on hand to introduce Billy and the other artists on the three day festival were none other than Bobby, Sue Ellen, and the cast of the hit TV series, Dallas! Then the following evening in Newark, England, Billy and the band wowed another record crowd at the Americana International Festival there where he headlined the Saturday night show.

In August Billy will head back to Poland where he will share the stage with good friend, Buddy Jewell at the Pure Country Festival in Wolsztyn.

RHONDA VINCENT AND WILLIE DUET WITH BILLY SONG - July 18, 2013

Watch for the new Rhonda Vincent/Willie Nelson duet coming soon on Rhonda's latest CD. Rhonda Vincent had this to say about the cut:

“Billy Yates wrote the songs Choices and I Don’t Need No Rockin’ Chair for George Jones. The irony is that I found this song on the same day as the George Jones memorial service at the Grand Ole Opry.

The song is in the same vein as Willie’s song, On The Road Again, which is why I thought it would be perfect for Willie to sing and play on this one.

We recorded it in a straight bluegrass style, with Aaron McDaris kicking off the song on  banjo, and the other musicians of The Rage trading licks with Willie throughout the song.

I can’t wait for you to hear it!!”

BILLY YATES COMMENTS ON GEORGE JONES' PASSING - April 26, 2013

Needless to say, my heart is broken at the loss of my hero, George Jones. It’s an honor to have contributed to his amazing career with songs like “I DON’T NEED YOUR ROCKIN’ CHAIR” and “CHOICES”, among others.  

I’m so proud of those achievements. But I’m more proud to have had the opportunity to call him my friend. In every way, he was a one of a kind and there’ll never be another George Jones!
