Billy Dean

Billy Dean received a basketball scholarship to attend East Central Junior College in Decatur, MS, where he majored in physical education, but instead of wearing a whistle around his neck, he opted for a guitar strap. Inspired by Merle Haggard, Marty Robbins, and Dean Martin, he played the club circuit along the Gulf Coast in Florida and used national talent contests as a vehicle for his music. He made the finals of the Wrangler Country Star Search in 1982, then won as a Male Vocalist champ on Ed McMahon's Star Search program in 1988. Even before the release of his debut album, Young Man, he'd already gone on tour as an opening act for Mel Tillis, Gary Morris, and Ronnie Milsap. In the midst of recording, Dean also dabbled in television. He contributed to commercials for Valvoline, McDonald's, and Chevrolet, and had an acting role in the brief Elvis series on ABC-TV in 1990. He landed bit parts on soap operas and dramas, and even hosted the 1994 season of ABC in Concert Country.

Dean followed up his debut with a self-titled 1991 effort for EMI; Fire in the Dark appeared two years later. A 1994 greatest-hits package included the song "Once in a While," written for the soundtrack to the Luke Perry rodeo vehicle 8 Seconds. A greatest-hits collection so early in an artist's career might seem strange, but considering that Dean had already charted seven singles, the release was easy money for Capitol. However, Dean's reign at the top of the charts was short-lived. Despite frequent releases throughout the rest of the 1990s, Dean wasn't able to crack the charts again. After three studio records and a live, fan-club-only disc, Dean issued Love Songs through Capitol in 2000. The collection of previously released material was followed by another, similar collection for Capitol/EMI in 2002. Dean continued to tour through 2003. ~ Johnny Loftus, Rovi

He is my Top 3 country artist of all time, simply because of his pure vocal ability... He has a very rare gift. I think he struggled to remain a the top because of song selections and because nothing he did after his first album could compare, he set the bar so high for himself and never could match it. It's really a shame because I believe he can easily out sing 99% of everyone out right now. He just needs to choose a well written song!

In a back yard concert in tiny Loa Utah, he invited me on stage to pick with him. He is a real musician and great gentleman What a fun memory. Thanks man!
Every time I hear Billy Dean, I go back to when I was a kid.
I did see Billy Dean for the first time in a Cow Boys night club here in Colorado Springs I will never forget when the Cow Boys Security Staff escorted him on stage I was Dinning with my then boyfriend and his father. Billy actually Stopped in his tracks and glanced my way. I thought I would melt , he is so Handsome ! and when I did hear him sing for the first time it took my breath away !. he did sing the song let them be little and it touched my heart so deeply, and brought a tear to my eye
My daughter who now is 27 yrs old first met Billy at the Fair Grounds in Dallas. My daughter and my wife fell in love with him. They where able to meet signing autographs. A few years later Billy performed at the West End of Dallas, this time Billy invited my daughter up on stage to dance with . We still talk about that time.
Very talented and love him to death.

Billy Dean sings songs that stand the test of time !
I miss Billy Dean sooo much...Where did he go? I grew up listening to two of his albums...I absolutely loved that man!
Still remember when he was here for a concert in KC and my husband & I just got parked and we were walking up to the building (Kemper, I believe) & Billy Dean was coming out to his tour bus and he was right there, no one around him...I went up to him and was able to get his autograph. By that time about 5 or 6 girls were there also getting his autograph... b o y was he tall and handsome. Love his music.
Wow this song brings back some good memories
I met you in Charlotte NC at one of the Park multi band concerts I think it was 1997 it was about three months after the break up of my 14 yr marriage my daughter and son at that time were 5 and 9 we enjoyed your show and were able to get back stage, and were able to speak with you and take a picture I loved the CD and just recently found the photo. I was listening to the CD on my way to work and it brought tears to my eyes, it has been a rocky road almost more than I can bear but my children k
He is one of the sexiest men in the world! I Just Love Him! He is perfect!!
One of the best concerts I've been to was Billy Dean and Kathy Mattea at Cheyenne Frontier Days. He was shoved in at the last minute when another artist backed, he was fantastic. He's got a great voice. I hope we hear more from him in the future.
This is a great artist. All his songs are pure and close to the heart. You should play a more diversified selection of his music than just this one song. He has quite a few that give the listener time to stop, listen, and enjoy. I look forward to hear more Billy Dean. Thanks.

My husband & I have an agreement... I can leave if Billy ever calls and wants me....he can leave if Faith Hill calls....LOL

I met Billy years ago, took my two young sons with me, and they both remember meeting him, and that he didn't treat them like little brats, he was very nice, and seemed genuinely interested in what both the boys had to say. They are now grown men, and still have fond memories of meeting him.
