Whatever Happened To Billie Jo Spears

I was working at KWYR in Winner South Dakota in 1975. It was a great year for Country Music. Conway was putting out #1 after #1, the general public was recognizing the genius of Willie, the outlaw movement was underway and the CB craze was sweeping the nation.

And Billie Jo Spears cut through it all and had a huge #1 hit with “Blanket On The Ground”.

She never was able to duplicate the success of that song. She ‘made the charts’ a number of times, but never reached #1 again.

Whatever happened to Billie Jo?

Well, she kept releasing albums into the 1980′s, and while her popularity lessened in the U.S., she remained a major name in the United Kingdom! In fact, she released many successful albums in the U’K. that were never released in the U.S.

In her later years she lived in Vidor, Texas and passed away from cancer December 14, 2011 at the age of 73.
