I just learned that Bilie Jo had passed away. She was one of my favorites. Having lived in vidor during the 60's I was privilidged to hear her first ones.
My brother had a country western band in Michigan in the 70's and he always had request for her songs
. Her music will be around for a long long time

I am deeply saddened by Billie's passing.

I knew her for many years since she moved to Nashville and I could always say that she was the sweetest, most genuine country girl I ever met. "Don't Go Near the Apple Tree" - the way Billie Jo does it - still, after all these years, makes me tear up.

She was a wonderful person and an unbelieveable talent.

God bless her.
January 09, 2012
Goodbye Billie Jo. You were an amazing talent. Fantastic voice. I regret never seeing you perform live but your music lives on.

Truly loved here in Ireland, May she Rest in peace.
(I hope that she keeps on singing for the good Lord)
December 24, 2011
As a former booking agent, and close friend, I shall truly miss this talented lady. One of the best female voices in country music, she will be missed and missed and missed. But will be a welcome addition to the choir of angels in heaven to which she now belongs. God bless her and her family, and best wishes.
December 24, 2011
A singer adored by many, including myself. Having met BJ on a number of occasions, I share the many thoughts of her kindness.
I'll remember BJ as an artist who persevered and achieved recognition, success and respect.
But more than that, Billie Jo was a loved one to those she left behind. My love to those who's hearts are hurting. May GOD comfort them. And GOD bless Billie Jo Spears.
December 23, 2011
i love country music and to my surprise i met a lady on one of my favorite chat groups who happened to be Billy J loving daughter. i never knew right off who she was still one night a dj was speaking bout her Mama, then i realized who she was . her country voice made me feel like i was the girl next door and she was singing just to me. i Loved her Mama and my new friend i found just as well. Time will heal but u never forget. id give anything to hear my mama voice again!!! so sorry friend she shall be missed!!!!!

December 23, 2011
My first introduction to BJ was a radio interview with a DJ in Dayton, Ohio when she was promoting her recording of "Harper Valley PTA". No disrespect to Jeannie C. Riley, but I thought BJ's recording was the better one! For whatever reason, the DJ's chose not to give it an equal shot! What if they had?

I have most of her albums and listen too her songs often. Without question, "the sexiest voice" I ever heard. She had the courage to take on subjects in her music that most singers wouldn't touch and the talent to deliver them in a way that no one else could!

Someone said she was the most "underated country singer" in this country! Personally, I rate her with the "all time greats"!

Thank you BJ for the untold hours of great music that you left us!
December 21, 2011
A week ago. The lord called your name. Took your hand and walked with you. Through heaven gate. I will always remember you. With your beautiful music. Much love Billie Jo. R.I.P.
December 20, 2011
Our heartfelt condolences to BJ's family. Hers and many others in 70's and 80's- was COUNTRY music. I truly enjoyed her songs.

December 20, 2011
The world found itself missing a piece of wonder when God called you away from this world. We do have another Angel to watch over us. Our friendship was priceless. And, to Donna, your Moma is pain free and leading Heaven's Choir!
December 19, 2011
One of the most under rated country singers in country music history. One of my all time favorites. True to herself and her music. Rest in peace.
December 19, 2011

Remember

Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you plann'd:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.

My father introduced me to Ms. Spears, and I was lucky enough as a teen to see her in Branson Missouri. She absolutely loved my curly hair, and the entire time she was talking to us and signing autographs, she kept playing with my curls. She was such a bright, loving person, and one of the few stars who really cares for her fans. May God Bless her family and friends.
