Billy Dean is an American Troubadour who has mastered the art of singing, songwriting, and storytelling. His unique ability to morph into the characters in his songs while performing LIVE, brings the storyline to life with musical drama.
Billy’s finger style acoustic guitar playing is reminiscent of James Taylor, and is percussive in nature. “I’ve never heard so much music coming from one man and one guitar. He’s the best I’ve ever seen”, says award winning producer/songwriter Monty Powell.
No matter what venue he performs in, large or small, with his band or just solo, Billy’s charismatic charm and approachable personality puts you, the listener, in an intimate living room setting, where he touches every emotional nerve, leaving you musically nourished with a renewed Spirit.
Although Billy’s best known in the Country Music genre for his 11 top ten singles, 5 number one’s and over 5 million albums sold, his musical roots are entangled with Folk, Southern Rock, Bluegrass and Classic Country.
Billy says his musical influences are ongoing, but his sound will forever have the finger prints of those troubadour’s who came before him like James Taylor, Dan Fogelberg, John Denver, The Eagles, Christopher Cross, David Gates and Bread, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, and Don Williams.
Billy Dean has been nominated by every major music award entity. Most recently he was inducted into the Florida Hall Of Fame for artist.
Shirtless and tattooed, the Ginger Billy gives viewers a humorous look into life in rural Upstate South Carolina. And he’s doing it all on his own. Ginger Billy will be live, on stage at the Dothan Opera House on Friday, January 28th at 7:00 pm. Ginger Billy began his comedy career just telling life like it is and developed a following with short videos. Quoted as saying, “Well, when he retired, (referring to Dale Earnhardt Jr.), I thought to myself, ‘man, you know what? This would be something that, uh, all rednecks would love if I talked about,’” he said. “When I saw how many views it got, I thought to myself, you know what, this might be actually pretty cool. This might be something I want to try again.” His videos can be found on many social media channels and he estimates he has received between 40 and 50 million views on the various topics he talks about - ranging from men's rompers to hot summer days to marriage and many other varied topics. Having toured with other comedians such as Catfish Cooley, we are glad to welcome Ginger Billy to the Historic Dothan Opera House and have him appear on our stage. Also scheduled to appear will be comedian Brandon Rainwater.
