ASSOCIATED ARTISTS MANAGEMENT AND AAM RECORDS
Billy Wayne has been in the music business since the late 50's. At 15 Billy Wayne
played steel guitar and Bass in Red's Playboy Club in Amarillo, Texas. The band consisted of Lucky Osborne on Steel, Lloyd
Wheeler on fiddle (Lloyd played with Bob Wills),, Billy Wayne on Bass.
The house band opened for Hank Thompson, Wanda Jackson, Hank Snow, Ray Price, and
many more. Willie Nelson played at Red's before he made it in music. Buddy Holly would come from Lubbock to play. In the 60's
Elvis played there with Jerry Lee and John Cash. A good start for Billy Wayne. Roger Miller played there and got his start
in Amarillo. He was one of Billy Wayne's friends and was a big influence on Billy.
Billy started Associated Artists Management and AAM records in Nashville in the 70's
