Mr. Music passed away on Saturday, October 22, 2011, at his residence in Jewett. He was born in Nashville, Tennessee, on May 5, 1956, to Jerry & Annie Jean Music. Mr. Music grew up between Tennessee, Chicago, Flordia, and Indiana before residing for many years in Channelview. He was a truck driver by trade. Billy accepted Christ as his savior in 1979, became very active in the bus and children's ministry, and surrendered to ministry in 1980 at Bayshore Baptist Church in Channelview. He was ordained and licensed as Pastor in 1982 and served his first Pastorate in Vernon that same year. He later served as Pastor at churches in Broaddus and San Augustine, and preached whenever and wherever he was given the opportunity. He married Tammy on April 2, 1993, and shared over eighteen years together. He and his family moved to Jewett in 1999 and joined First Baptist Church in Jewett until he was called to Pastor at Redland Baptist Church. He later joined Corinth Baptist Church in Dew where he was presently a member. In 2004, Mr. Music took a job in Iraq, working under the U.S. Department of Defense. This gave him the opportunity to serve his country, be a missionary, and still be able to support his family. Since 2004, he has worked in Iraq, Kuwait, and Afghanistan and returned home on September 6, 2011, due to his illness. In his leisure time, he enjoyed hunting and fishing and buying and selling classic cars. Mr. Music had a very generous spirit and enjoyed being able to help others.
