CD Review: Newly Discoved Album By Country Star Billie Jo Spears Finally Released

Country artist Billie Jo Spears had a musical career that lasted over 60 years. She had a #1 hit single in 1975 with "Blanket On The Ground" and cracked the top ten 4 other times. Spears became even more popular in the U.K. where she was named "Queen Mother Of Country Music." Spears released her last studio album in 1991. She passed away in 2011 from cancer at the age of 74.

A newly discovered, unreleased studio album from Billie Jo Spears was finally released in August. It was recorded in 1982 and was titled after the album's most famous cover song "C'est La Vie." The new release features 13-tracks, beginning with Chuck Berry's "(You Never Can Tell) C'est La Vie" and the emotional "Apart At The Dreams." She delivers that classic country sound in "I Can Hear Kentucky Calling Me," then lets her vocals soar on the ballad, "When I Dream." One of the songs on this release was previously recorded in 1975 for her album "Billie Jo" as you can hear the sincerity in her voice for "Everytime Two Fools Collide." The album closes with the nostalgic country twang of "I'm Not Good At Goodbye." To find out more about this newly released Billie Jo Spears album, please visit
