Billy is an authentic Southerner who was born and bred in Birmingham, Alabama. He was spoon fed on Rhythm and Blues, Rock & Roll, Bluegrass, and Gospel.

He began his musical career as a drummer and guitarist, and later, took up playing the upright bass fiddle in the 1970s with various Bluegrass groups (because he found playing the bass easier to pick up girls after the show). While playing in Nashville, Tennessee, Billy developed a strong attraction and feel for Gospel music, and began rediscovering the music of his roots. He is now a member of the gospel group Sawmill Gravy and the Biscuits.

Billy is one of the original members of Steve Purdy and the Studs, and has played throughout the Southeastern United States with various groups including the Leatherwood Bluegrass Band, and the Doobious Brothers.
