Billy is now eager to come back and share his new music and new sound with his fans. "It took me a good while to figure out exactly who I was, musically speaking. As a little kid, sometimes I was just told what to sing. But now I have enjoyed coming into my own and discovering what it really is that I want to sing. And I think that my fans will be pleasantly surprised with what they hear."
Billy's also mindful of the need to be patient with his career. "Music is my life, and it is always what I will be doing with my life," he says. "But I understand, given my unusual history, that the road back is not going to be short and easy. I will have to earn my way back into this business – one fan at a time. And that's exactly how it should be."
"Say You Will" is the first solo single Billy has released since 2008. "Having had a lot of success in this business at a really young age was truly a blessing," he says. "But it also puts me in a unique and challenging situation as a young adult – trying to re-introduce myself to country fans now that I look and sound a lot different than I did just seven or eight years ago."
In 2012, Billy made waves by recruiting 18 fellow country superstars to collaborate on a charity single called "The Choice" to benefit the Soles4Souls charity. Proceeds from the song, which included artists Keith Urban, Alan Jackson, Reba McEntire, Josh Turner, and Rodney Atkins, placed shoes on tens of thousands of barefoot children around the world.
