Billy Lord, an official CMT artist, is unquestionably one of the fastest rising stars in the country rock scene, and is a “Rocky” story for the unemployed American. After losing his job, home and marriage in 2009, Billy began teaching himself guitar and writing songs while working homeless in New York City just four short years ago.
Since that time, Billy has stormed to a Top 40 chart position on the Country Charts with his single “Steal the Evening Sky,” spent four consecutive weeks at #1 on the Iceman’s New Country Artist Chart and earned opening slots with Eric Church and Uncle Kracker.
Billy’s debut album, American Music was hailed as “One of the 10 best releases in 2012,” and his newly released National Anthem album helped Billy climb to the prestigious Number 1 spot on the New York City Reverbnation artist rock charts. Billy has recently moved to Nashville where he is currently writing his third album, and preparing to tour with his band.
