Album Notes
He loved to laugh long before he was a center ring clown with Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey. He loved to sing long before he started writing songs while rolling along on the circus train.

Writer of two Jerry Jeff Walker classic album titles, Billy Jim Baker is a clown that's lived a funny life. This Smoky Mountain musical minstrel man was also a"Cornfield County" comedy regular on Hee Haw, Dolly Parton's featured musical/comedy star at Dollywood and at his own award-winning Old Smoky Hoedown show in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. In 2001 he was inducted into the International Clown Hall of Fame.

"Contrary To Ordinary:Big Shoes & Baggy Pants"is a musical observation of the ride on the road not taken by most folks. Funny songs, look you in the eye serious, irreverent & pie in the face profound tunes wrapped in a colorful life, a clowns curosity and a warm, soulful voice. His grease paint joys and slapstick sorrows have made this singing soul and his traveling trunk of tunes a CD worth listening to.
