Bill has been a hit-making country songwriter for his duo Foster and Lloyd as well as artists like Martina McBride and Trisha Yearwood, but his true love has been power pop, starting with Sgt. Arms (our intro song is the 1982 single, “Caught in Traffic,” a 1982 single) through his 10+ solo albums.
We discuss the title track from Don’t Kill the Messenger (2020), “What Time Won’t Heal” (co-written with Graham Gouldman) from Working the Long Game (2018), and “Off and Running” a track from the expanded version of his first solo album Feeling the Elephant (1987). End song: “Rough Edges” by Cimarron 615 (a 2022 take on a song that he wrote with Rusty Young and Radney Foster for the band Poco). More at billlloydmusic.net.
