“I’m living life backwards,” jokes Billy Bob Earl, whose current Country hit, “Hard Times On the Run,” is running up the charts and airwaves of America. “When I hit 50, the kids were grown and moved out, so I turned my energy to music and acting. And here I am with two # 1 songs, making music videos seen on YouTube, won the Independent Music Network’s New Discovery Country Artist of 2013 award and fortunate to have several small acting roles to my credit. I’m living life backwards and I am thankful every day for all the blessings. I want everyone to know that age has nothing to do with anything.” Billy Bob lists Garth Brooks, George Jones, George Strait and Willie Nelson among his favorite artists and no doubt Willie Nelson would agree with Billy Bob that age has nothing to do with anything.

    Billy Bob Earl has an interesting story. It is nice to know that when you reach a certain age, it is not any longer about getting the big record deal, because let’s face it — after 35 it ain’t coming. But rather about just having fun. And I think it easier to do that when there is not the pressure of finding the major label, but playing and making music for the love of it. See, there are some big benefits with age!

      I agree with T. Pierce. We all know there is no major label deal coming after a certain age no matter good you might think you are. So, just go out and get some airplay, book a few gigs, shake a few hands and have fun. You aren’t gonna’ make a million. Hell, you might make a couple thousand if you are lucky and have a good team behind you, but having fun at that age is priceless. You go Billy. Enjoy the ride.

    I personally have known Billy Bob for many years. He’s worked hard over the years and writing music was always just a hobby. He’s a very sincere guy and has had a lot of hard times and disappointments. Now he finally has time to pursue his real dream in music. It’s tough road but it doesn’t matter cause he loves what he’s doing and is really enjoying his life now. Keep voting for BILLY BOB EARL.
