Grammy-winning Country Singer Billy Dean returns to Players Circle and is joined by Chris Wallin. Dean, has sold over 5 million albums and has 10 top ten hits. Popular Country Singer, songwriter, a storyteller who first came to National Attention on Star search in 1990.

Chris Wallin has established as one of Nashville’s most sought-after songwriters. Artists who have cut Chris’s songs include Kenny Chesney, Garth Brooks, Trace Adkins, Lorrie Morgan, and many more.

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.

With his unique gift for finding the extraordinary in ordinary life, Chris Wallin has established himself as one of Nashville’s most sought-after songwriters. He is in a very small club of songwriters that have knocked themselves out of the billboard number 1 position.

Wallin has topped the charts with classics-in-the-making for the industry’s biggest stars: “Love Me If You Can” by Toby Keith, “Don’t Blink” by Kenny Chesney, “I’m Tryin’” by Trace Adkins, “Something To Be Proud Of” and “Speed” by Montgomery Gentry and “People Loving People” by Garth Brooks .

Raised in the small town in East Tennessee Wallin was influenced by the likes of Jim Croce, James Taylor and Merle Haggard, as well as his own musical family – especially his mother, a singer herself. She recorded and performed in Nashville when Chris was only 7 years old, and the experience made an indelible impression on Chris.

He began writing songs at age 12 and, perhaps inevitably, moved to Music City several years later, making the dues-paying rounds of writers nights and songwriting contests. He caught a break when his songs caught the ear of a small publishing company called King Lizard Music.

Since then Wallin has worked hard to achieve his place on the “A List” of Nashville songwriters, and doesn’t take his status for granted: Chris says “Back then I used to buy 50 McDonald’s 29 cent hamburgers at a time and put them in the freezer. I could eat all week on $15 … They weren’t bad, except the last few get a little crusty from freezer burn.”

Artists who have cut Chris’s songs include Lorrie Morgan, Kenny Chesney , Garth Brooks, Aaron Lewis, Montgomery Gentry, Sammy Kershaw, Trace Adkins, Confederate Railroad, Neal McCoy, Brad Paisley, Joe Diffie, Diamond Rio, Toby Keith and many more.
