    Billy Joe Royal, singer of the famous 1965 hit, "Down In The Boondocks" died unexpectedly Tuesday morning in his North Carolina home. He was 73-years-old.

    Born April 3, 1942, Billy Joe Royal made a splash in the music industry with his pop and country hits. Other notable hits were "I Knew You When", "Hush", and "Cherry Hill Park". He didn't switch over to country until the eighties, where he had a few successful top ten hits, including "Tell It Like It Is" and "Burned Like A Rocket".

    Honestly, I am not that familiar with Billy Joe Royal, but a quick Google search gave me an idea about his life and career. It's sad thing that he has now died. May he rest in peace.
