Billy Yates' first cut as was the George Jones' smash, "I Don't Need Your Rockin' Chair." And plenty has happened since then. He's had several songs recorded by George Jones, including the Grammy nominated hit "Choices", along with other cuts by George Strait, Kenny Chesney, Sara Evans, Gary Allan, Joe Nichols, John Michael Montgomery, Tracy Lawrence, Doug Stone, Ricochet, Ricky Van Shelton, David Allan Coe and others.
In addition to this, he's also had lucrative sideline writing and singing jingles for firms including Chevy Trucks, Ford Trucks, Kellogg's, Slick 50, Heinz 57, and Pepsi Cola.
