Billy Bob Thornton : Six Degrees of Swampland

YOUR GUIDE TO ALL THINGS BILLY BOB AT SWAMPLAND.COM

Besides being one of the finest actors, directors and screenwriters of our time, Billy Bob Thornton is also a recording and touring musician. His latest album, Beautiful Door has been praised by critics and industry insiders alike. Likewise, the debut double album by his band The Boxmasters was released to critical acclaim in 2008.

 

“Billy Bob Thornton is one of the true creative artists of our time. These songs of his are from the heart – honest expressions of the love and the loss and the hopeful innocence that make up this complex soul. You’ve got to love Hearts Like Mine, and understand his empathy for Carnival Girl. I Gotta Grow Up will make you laugh and The Boy is Gone will break your heart.” - Kris Kristofferson

"Not only is Billy Bob Thornton my favorite actor of all time, he is now one of my favorite rock stars." -Michael Buffalo Smith
