AHH this is the best post I’ll probably ever write on #CMchat, but I am so excited to announce that my wonderful boss, #CMchat founder, and beautiful lady, Jessica Northey, is engaged!
Her fiance, Billy Shaw Jr. is as Geeky, as he is country. His nickname is “High Tech Redneck – Mayberry meets Star Trek,” after the George Jones song. His sound and style are unlike anything in the country music world – past or present. His unique and easily identifiable voice is strong emotion-laden and smooth with a deep hint of raspy multiplied by his vulnerable nerd quality as his fingers fly on his fiddle and he stops to adjust his big black glasses. Those glasses remind me exactly of Bobby Bones. Billy is easy to talk to and easy to like. He’s charismatic and drops everything just to help someone.
Currently living in Tucson, Billy is a highly sought-after fiddler and vocalist who fronts several Arizona bands ‘playing fiddle from the middle,’ meaning lead vocals + fiddle.
