On Friday 25 September 2020, Gene Watson remembered Billie Jo Spears (Friday 14 January 1938 – Wednesday 14 December 2011), and her big hit single, ‘Blanket On The Ground’, which was written by Roger D. Bowling (Sunday 3 December 1944 – Sunday 26 December 1982); the track was No.1 on the Billboard country music singles chart for one week in April / May 1975.
‘I was just remembering this great hit by Billie Jo Spears.
Billie Jo and I recorded some duets that never did get released – maybe those will re-surface someday.
I know you will remember this one which was a No.1 hit back in 1975.
RIP Billlie Jo’
