I met him at Café Columbia in Kisa, Sweden. We had a talk about the bible-belt from Columbus, Ohio to Cincinnati, Kentucky. About Trump-land. About good beers and Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. It was an amazing evening with Billie and his songs, unplugged by the fireplace.
Billie is an "outlaw" like Merle Haggard and Gram Parson, but you should know that the original outlaw was and is Billie Gant.
This song is for you, Billie. It's not a countrysong but a swedish way of writing and play music, the same colours, the same spirit.
Many thanks to Patrik "Pata" Jonsson who plays the slide and lead guitar and to Mats Tinnervall who plays the blues harmonica.
