Country singer Billie Jo Spears has passed away aged 74 after losing her battle with cancer. She was one of my Mum and Dad’s favourite singers. They especially loved “Blanket On The Ground“. She first appeared as a professional on stage aged just 13, she also appeared on the famous Louisiana Hayride show aged 13. That age was obviously very productive for her as she also released her first single then. She used the name Billie Jean Moore and the song was called “Too Old For Toys, Too Young For Boys”.
I would like to pass on my condolences to her family, friends and fans. Here are a couple of songs to remember her by. Billie Jo Spears RIP.
