A Rockabilly Hall of Famer has just passed away. Billy Adams has died at the age of 79.
Billy passed away in Spring Hill, Tennessee. His funeral is going to be held on Monday, according to his manager.
Billy has a very interesting story. Before becoming a Hall of Fame icon, Billy was Bron to humble beginnings. He was the son of a coal miner and had 13 siblings. He started getting into music when he was just a child.
"Adams told Public Radio International for a series they did on rockabilly music, that with no money for instruments, he strummed a lard bucket like a guitar and listened to Bill Monroe on the Grand Ole Opry radio program," reported Fox.
He went on to produce many wonderful hits and a huge following.
"Among other songs he recorded in the late '50s include You Heard Me Knocking, True Love Will Come Your Way, and You Gotta Have a Duck Tail. Adams told PRI he was inspired to write Rock, Pretty Mama, listening to the sound of trains near his home. It was released in 1957 and was included in multiple compilations of rockabilly songs. He recorded a comeback record at Sun Studios called Legacy in 2000," according to Fox.
Please join us in praying for everyone who knew and loved Billy. May memories of him bring them peace and comfort during this sad time.
