Singer-songwriter Billy Paul's introduction to music came with the singing cowboys like Gene Autry and Roy Rogers. He later idolized Elvis and Buddy Holly, and played in R&B and rockabilly bands before delving into country music. After high school, Billy Paul hit the road, working in the nightclubs of Colorado and California. Pulled irresistibly to Texas, he toured throughout the southwest for the next five years. Some of his biggest dates include the Kerrville Festival where he appeared with legends like Ernest Tubb, Don Williams, and The Texas Playboys. At the Cheetam Street Warehouse he played alternate nights with George Strait. In 1978 he and his band were nominated for 'Band of the Year' by the 'Austin Statesman.' Now Billy Paul's on Bear Family, and his new CD contains 17 titles including Buckshot Buck,
Rodeo Queen, '57 Fairlane, Hillybilly Hula Gal und My House Is Your Honky Tonk.
