Billy Dalton grew up listening to and playing bluegrass music in the late 70's and early '80's. After stints playing guitar with area bluegrass bands, he was bitten by the songwriting bug after attending a concert by legendary folk artist Nanci Griffith. Billy now performs regionally with his wife and sometimes co-writer Lynn. His music has been described as "folk and Americana colliding with style". He has described his musical hobby as his "mid-life crisis". Billy also is a member of the Nashville Songwriters Association, and has collaborated on songs which have achieved recognition by such organizations as Billboard, Country Music Television(CMT), and the Austin (TX) Songwriters Group.
