I started playing and singing in Roanoke VA in the early 60's. I was described by many fans as a cross between Roy Orbison and John Denver with a little bot of Sam Cooke added by a local Baltimore/Washinton Radio Host. "Billy's awesome range and warmth puts him in a unique class of vocalists". Billy performs with many local Balt/DC bands and does many venues with his own group "The Billy Hedrick Band". Billy is an accomplished Guitarists and has quite a collection of Axes, including ones given to him by blues legends BB King and "Guitar" Shorty and new sensational Nashville star Johnny Hiland. Billy loves to do the classics from the 60's and 70's, as well as many new Country and Rock tunes.
