Billy Crain focuses on what’s important with newest LP, ‘Family Matters’

Bill Crain band

Nashville southern rocker Billy Crain is certainly no newcomer. Although his name might not be instantly recognizable to some younger folk, the award-winning singer-songwriter boasts an active, laudable career, having played with Dixie Chicks and Shania Twain and shared stages with some of classic rock’s finest in Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brother Band, The Rolling Stones, ZZ Top and more.

Beyond music, Crain is a family man with simple pleasures in life. He admits, “I am a sinner but have been saved by the Grace of God. I still love to play guitar, write songs, and make records. I love Jesus and my wife and four children.” Crain humbly states that “that’s about all you need to know about [him],” but the man deserves to be applauded for his humility, selflessness and generosity—his often noble actions and choices which subsequently become integrated into his musical work. Crain has fostered, adopted and ultimately saved children in need of better lives, helped fund various churches and orphanages with proceeds from his own albums and also contributed to medical costs for a terminally ill friend. Not only is Billy Crain making music for himself, but his creations quite literally are for many, many others as well and put a lot of positives into a world that can always use them.

Crain’s newest album, fittingly titled Family Matters, focuses on a lot of these ideas and continues to showcase a man using his talents for good in the world. You can listen through the 10-track effort below, which helped fund a mission trip to Columbia for his church, and be on the lookout for more new material from Crain sometime in 2016.
