An upcoming Book – Featuring Grand Ole Opry Member ‘The Tall Texan’ BILLY WALKER and his loving wife ‘BETTIE’
Together we are standing on the horizon, the dawning of a New Year 2011 – a time to celebrate and reflect as life unfolds through the pages of a long awaited and overdue book now in progress. Billy & Bettie revealed to me their desire for a book project in February 2006. Even in the beginning phase, plans were put on hold when on May 21, 2006 a tragic accident took the lives of Billy and Bettie along with their devoted and talented band members, Charles Lilly & Danny Patton.
Never dreaming in ‘A Million & One’ years this opportunity would come my way again, Kelly Brooks (daughter) contacted me several months later. In setting goals and guidelines, the firm decision was made to include everyone; family, friends and fans as each played a major role in Billy & Bettie’s life. Your stories, pictures and other memorabilia are welcomed.
January 1st commemorates Billy’s induction as member of the Grand Ole Opry – January 14th, Billy’s birthdate and today – January 15th the revelation of a dream come true.
‘Funny How Time Slips Away’ paraphrases a time when the treasured moments of yesterday weaves a pattern of endless love and faith with Billy, Bettie and ‘You’ through the creation of this ”Book”.
