“Billy the Kid” spotted in Chatfield


Fri, Oct 26th, 2012
Posted in Chatfield Arts & Culture

By Barb Jeffers

Performer Billy Dean arrived in Chatfield, Minn. on October 22, 2012, to give area residents a chance to “spend an evening with ‘Billy the Kid’.” The singer brought no band, no smoke, no stage full of bright lights. It was just Billy and his guitar. Billy Dean is known for hits like “Billy The Kid,” “Somewhere In My Broken Heart,” and “Let Them Be Little,” all of which he performed for the audience in Chatfield. Billy Dean has also appeared in numerous television shows and made-for TV movies, and was once among the cast of the soap opera One Life to Live.

The evening was held at the Chatfield Center for the Arts’ Potter Auditorium, which was the perfect for a more intimate feel. The event is sponsored by the Fillmore County Deputy Sheriff’s Association with the proceeds going towards two $500 scholarships for Fillmore County students pursuing a career in Law Enforcement. A portion is used toward upgrading equipment, and any remaining profit is given to area schools to use for post-prom events. The benefit normally raises approximately $2,500 after expenses. The Sheriff’s Association does not choose the performer, a promotional company makes those arrangements.

When asked how he liked the acoustic show compared to a regular show, Billy Dean stated he likes the more intimate acoustic performance because “people can hear the words,” and he added, “and there is no fear of being too loud.” Opening for Billy Dean was Jamie O’Neal with her husband, Rodney, accompanying her. O’Neal has had hits with songs such as “Trying To Find Atlantis” and “Somebody’s Hero.” The Fillmore County Deputy Sheriff’s Association was fortunate to get two highly talented performers for this year’s benefit.

The song that gets the biggest reaction from the crowd when he plays it is “Let Them Be Little,” according to Dean. Billy Dean released a new CD on September 25, 2012, titled A Man Of Good Fortune, which he says “has received outstanding reviews from the critics.” The new CD includes a song called “A Seed,” which he stated was “one of the best songs I have ever heard.”

Billy Dean gave the audience a show which felt more personal than most. His sense of humor mad se the night even more entertaining telling several funny stories from his life which included his friends and family. For more information on Billy Dean go to [Read the Rest]
