Billie-Jo’s debut single ‘Feels Like Us’ an upbeat, heart-warming love song co-written with Andrew Blyth at the Dag Sheep Station Songwriters Retreat debut at No.2 on the Itunes Singer/Songwriter chart, No.1 on AMRAP Regional Chart, No.15 on The Countrytown Music Network Chart and reached the dizzy heights of No.2 on Tamworth own 2TM’s Australian Country Music Chart.
Billie-Jo’s follow up single ‘Eyes Wide Open’ is a happy beach-boho, live-and-let-live anthem that will make you want to take off your shoes and enjoy the sunshine with friends.
