Billy Swan got his musical influences from the early days of rock and roll and people that were playing it like Jerry Lee Lewis and Buddy Holly. But he recorded a song in the mid 70′s that everyone was playing. It would be his only hit song.

 

Before getting that first hit song, he worked with people like Kris Kristofferson, Kinky Friedman and Billy Joe Shaver.

Swan was well known in the music business in the 60′s as a songwriter and producer. In fact he produced a huge hit song for Tony Joe White called “Polk Salad Annie”, that reached the Top Ten in 1969.

In the mid 70′s Swan went into the studios at Monument Records, this as an artist. He recorded a song that he wrote. It wasn’t a complicated song and had great appeal.

It shot to Number One on both the pop charts and country charts in the fall of 1974. It seem like every radio station was playing it, no matter what the format was.

The song “I Can Help” from Billy Swan.
