Update for the Fans and Friends

Just an update for everyone. I will be going back out on the road some time this summer to promote my new album, Billy Dean Sings Richard Leigh. We are thinking about releasing a single for radio, so hopefully you'll get a chance to hear some new music.

I just returned from Napa Valley where I did a new photo shoot with the famous photographer Jim Shea. This guy is amazing and has shot all of my heroes, like James Taylor, Jackson Brown, The Eagles, etc... I will post some of the pics very soon. I should have the artwork completed for the new album soon and posted in a couple of days. I can't wait to get your feedback on the new album.

The response has been great regarding the live DVD recording. I haven't set a date yet because I want to make sure there is enough notice for those who want to attend.

If any of you want me to come to your area to perform, there is a new site you should check out: Eventful. This site is a valuable tool for both you and me in terms of planning and routing my dates. It's exciting to think I may get the chance to reconnect with fans in person, and to have new music to perform.

Also, I wanted to let you know our website is a work in progress and I do appreciate your feedback as we go forward. Get ready for some new music, new photos...it's on the way.

On another note, I've been writing with Robin Meade. Robin is the headline news anchor on CNN. Her show is called Morning Express with Robin Meade. Robin has a new book coming out in September called Morning Sunshine. She and I wrote a song and recorded it last weekend here in Nashville. You might catch a podcast on her site of us in the studio.




  1. Hi Billy -

    It's really nice to hear about what you've been up to lately. I'm so excited to hear that you will be back on the road soon. Can't wait to hear the new music and add to my Billy Dean CD collection!! I'm looking forward to the new pics too. Make sure you put Oregon on that tour schedule. Hope to see you on the road soon!


  2. This is great news!! The songs on the album are fantastic!! Can't wait to hear them live!


  3. My husband, Sgt. Velasco, had a great time talking to you tonight at the UofA. Thanks for the pic with him. I blogged it :). Hope you enjoyed NWArkansas.

  4. Wow, a live performance again? What a wonderful treat - thank you! And the DVD taping too? What great news!

    BTW, picked up an advance galley of Robin Meade's book (due out in September) at Book Expo last week -- she sounds like a wonderful lady. Can't wait to catch the podcast of your song together!

    Be well, and thanks for sharing your gifts with us!

  5. Whoo Hoo! Live concerts again! Love It! Please make sure that Southwest Florida is on your list. Don't forget those fans in your home state. It is wonderful to hear that you are doing well with all of your endeavors.

  6. Am I the only one here who can't purchase the mp3? I have signed in and when I press check out, it repeatedly tells me to sign in again. HELP!! Thanks
