It’s here! The pre-release copies are ready… and FREE! (Just donate something to the River Fund please. Billy has agreed to donate all royalties from this MP3 download from iTunes, Amazon and similar download sites, and all streaming proceeds – in posterity – to The River Fund Cancer Connection.)
“You’ll Know I’m There” is powerful and touching! One fan wrote: “It makes me so emotional. Everyone wants someone to sing that to them with the conviction you are singing it with. Now I am going to play it again. Absolutely brilliant.”
I hope my friends and fans will share this post – together we can make a difference!

Here’s a short clip of me performing Billy Joel’s “My Life” at the Avi Casino and Resort in Laughlin. During the 3rd set, the “no see um” bugs arrived, and I was the only person who couldn’t run for the hills! They were flying in my mouth – and up my nose. You should be able to see them in this HD video. They stayed for 3 songs and then left 🙂
The Live debut of “You’ll Know I’m There”. I wasn’t planning on playing it, but every person at the table in front of me is actually mentioned on the CD credits, and I didn’t know when they’d all be together at the same time again. At the Avi Casino and Resort. April 27, 2017. Enjoy. Special thanks to Alicia for capturing the moment.
Update – the event is FREE! Look for the large tent they’re erecting (they just called me). I’ll be performing at The Avi Resort and Casino tomorrow, April 27th from 4-8PM for their first “Acoustic Night on the Beach” series during the Annual Laughlin River Run. I hope you’ll come out and share an acoustic evening with me!
A huge shout out to my favorite guitar player – Enrique Corro!! He’s been on every one of my singles for the past seven years! “You’ll Know I’m There” was supposed to be a piano song. He came in and added some licks – and changed the song! His guitar solo is a combination of acoustic guitar layered over electric guitar – with a leslie effect on it. Totally awesome!
WOW! The new song is done! It’s so powerful! So emotional! Even “I” cried when I heard it! Here’s a short clip. It will be released May 5th – the 7-month anniversary of me going solo. All download sales are being donated to the same charity as the Laughlin Chamber’s Connie Davis 5K Run for Cancer… the River Fund Cancer Connection.
My first post-op show was wonderful! The only people who were aware of the “cancer backstory” were my friends. And… every single person at Lisa’s went home with a memory – which is what my job is all about! These girls were singing excellent harmonies at their table. I invited them on stage 🙂 And… Clay Masters came out of hibernation to see me!!
#TBT “Billy Kay” shirts everywhere! LOL We confirmed yesterday that all sales from the new song are going to the same charity as the Connie Davis 5K Walk for Cancer – The River Fund’s Cancer Connection.
