With the release of his latest chart-topping and critically acclaimed album, “Crossing Willow Creek,” Kansas City folk singer-songwriter Bill Abernathy has vaulted onto the national and international music radar.

The album has hovered in the Top 10 country albums chart on Roots Music Report since its release. This cross-genre appeal of Bill’s music has earned him the respect from many of his peers, and acclaim from the harshest critics.

“The digital world has been so good to ‘Crossing Willow Creek,’ we have decided to step out out of the studio and out of cyber land to meet our fans face to face,” said Bill Abernathy. “I am so excited to meet you and hear your stories and tell you a few of mine through the songs. Remember, if you hear a song that sounds like it was written about you, it may have been.”
