Billy Troy has achieved an exciting and extensive career in the entertainment industry starting when he was just a young boy. His father, Uncle Josh Graves played dobro for Bluegrass legends Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs and this allowed Billy to spend every Friday & Saturday night of his youth standing backstage at the Grand Ole Opry watching his dad perform. Feeling the excitement during those performances molded Billy into the entertainer he is today. As a young man, Billy stood in the coveted spot himself performing for Opry audiences and also had the honor of being introduced on the Opry by Mr. Roy Acuff. The encores he received after those shows stay with him as some of the most memorable times in his life as an entertainer.

Billy penned the musical play "Memories of the Opry" documenting the times he spent backstage with his dad. The play was a huge success for Billy, selling out venues nationwide.

Billy has produced, promoted and hosted several of country legend Gene Watson's live performances of the "Texas Road Show." Billy performs on the show with Opry greats Jeannie Seeley, TG Sheppard, Moe Bandy, Johnny Lee and Gene Watson. Over the years, Gene has recorded a number of songs written by Billy Troy and they share a friendship that spans 3 decades. Some of those songs include: "All Hat & No Cattle", "Someone's Child", "That's When You Know It's Over", "The Ballad of Richard Lindsey", "When There's Not a Tear Left To My Name" and "She Has No Memory of Me."

Billy's success as a Nashville songwriter and music producer have garnered him several Grammy nominations plus a Grammy Finalist nod for his production in Bluegrass & Country music. His bluegrass production of the classic Christmas song "Sleigh Ride" was also featured in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Look for this and many other favorites on Billy's CD "Pickin' On Christmas." Billy also produced Grand Ole Opry star Jeannie Seely's CD "Life's Highway" as well as several of his father's CDs. Most notably one of Josh Graves' last recordings "Sultan of Slide."
