Album Info

[Track #8 was missing on the original post  on 02/10/12. I have included a link just for that track along with new links to MF & RS] I apologize for the mistake folks. I somehow moved the track to another folder before I added it to the archives for uploading.

Willie was kind enough to send me this album and I thank you sir.
 I wasn't able to find very much information about Billy Mack other than the short bio that Willie also gave to me. I do know he was born in Ireland and moved to Belgium were I believe he still resides. Listening to his voice anyone would think he came from somewhere in Texas not Ireland.

Billy Mack was born into a showbusiness family. His mother Betty and father William toured the country in the 50’s and 60’s with the McCormick Roadshow bringing much needed entertainment to rural areas. When they quit the roadshow they formed a family group: Mum, Dad, Billy and brother David. When Billy was old enough he joined the big showbands. He played with some of the greats such as Jake Ruane, Pat Ely, Hugo Duncan and The Ranchers, Gloria.

Then he decided to go solo – he moved to Belgium. The country scene is very big there. He stayed there for four years picking up many awards for country music.

Owning to a family tragedy he returned to Ireland in 2001. He put his career on hold. Once again the tragedy struck when his eldest daughter Cheryl (19) tragically died in 2005. From then on he had no heart to sing or play music until earlier this year a good friend Eugene Donnely persuaded Billy to sing again.

Things have took off from there thanks to Eugene who now manages Billy. Billy has five other album to his credit. It's Not Easy, Billy Mack & the Dukes Band - New Country Vol. 1, Some Old Some New, Hard Rock Bottom & Billy Mack & the Texans - Line Dance.
