Love me some Billy tunes!
When I start playing this CD of Billy Yates'... I end up stalling the process by playing "That's Why I Run" a few times. It is probably my favorite song in this collection of Hits! The other song I favor so highly is his "She Didn't Say a Word!" That song should be airing on country radio... This is really my favorite album of Billy's and I hope others will buy themselves copies and share an extra one with a friend. Spreading the wealth this way never felt so right!!
