|My Memories of Billy Crain by Pat Adams from Tennessee Concerts (this website)
Musician & songwriter Billy Crain has been playing in Nashville bands as long as I can remember.
I first heard of Billy Crain after seeing his band "Buckeye" in the '70's.
I saw Billy when he played Grey Ghost with the Henry Paul Band at Volunteer Jam IV in 1979.
I never got to see Billy with The Outlaws, since I only saw The Outlaws in their early days.
Billy Crain co-wrote Call It Love, a big hit for the country/rock band Poco.
I've seen the late Tommy Crain many many times (including the Volunteer Jam concerts).
On this night, Billy played Tommy's song with Tommy's gold-top Gibson Les Paul guitar.
That song being, Lonesome Boy From Dixie. A tribute to Tommy Crain & Taz DiGregorio.
See our video (below) of Billy Crain at this 40th Anniversary of the Volunteer Jam.
