Bill Vancil was a prominent figure in radio for many years, as a voice talent, program manager, and executive. In 2013 he was inducted into the Wisconsin Broadcasters Hall of Fame. “In the glory days of music radio – country or pop didn’t matter,” says Bill. “A hit was a hit. On the radio you might hear Patsy Cline played right next to Tony Bennett. Sometimes a hit by a country artist would be covered by a pop artist and become a hit all over again, and vice-versa. So covering songs is not a new idea. ” What is new, is Bill giving the songs his own spin, without forgoing the essence of the original. An example is his version of Johnny Cash’s “Stand By Me.” Bill does it in a bossa nova mode. For this first “Smooth Country Covers” album, Bill Vancil has chosen five classic country songs with meaningful lyrics and indelible melodies.
