Phil Keaggy: “I first met Billy Masters back in the early to mid 70s I really enjoyed The Archers.They were truly talented and their albums were produced so well. Their songs were top notch as well.
Being a guitarist myself, I took particular notice of Billy. He played so tastefully but what truly impressed me, even beyond that, was his humility. I found that quality also in John Wickham, Peter York, Tom Hemby, Bob Wall and others…
I look forward to that day when we shall again play songs unto the Lord with new stringed instruments.
Thanks for you interest in my thoughts about Billy Masters. He was a true musician and even more so, a good man! 6/15/19L
Kevin Grady I met your Dad once at an Archer’s concert I Emceed. He wrote some awesome music and I know the Archer’s adores him. If your father had lived to a ripe old age, I know that you would have been the apple of his eye and he would have taught you all he knew. You are a very sweet woman and a wonderful mom and just keep doing what you are to honor him. I am sure he is looking down and smiling a huge grin. Yea kind of like that one. 😁6
Ruth Baxter Billy was a wonderful , loving, caring man who loved his wife , parents, daughter and family and friends. Most of all he loved the Lord, as reflected in his music. He had a very gentle way about him and a special attentiveness when he spoke with you. He is face to face with Jesus now but he will be a lasting memory to me. He was my brother in law. I wish I had been able to spend more time with him.4
Stephen Mark Archer I love him like a brother and look forward to seeing him again someday! He has touched and is still touching so many lives! Through his songs he encouraged us all to have a Fresh Surrender to the Lord!2L
Marci Hitchcock Billy was a very special person… at only 3 weeks old in the Lord he was my mentor, our dates consisting of studying & memorizing the Word. He challenged me to grow in the Lord… nearly 50 years later I still serve the Lord, married 43 years, in ministry and still remember the first scripture he challenged me to memorize: “Not that I speak in respect of want, for I have learned in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content” Phil. 4:11 . Thank you Billy for being obedient even as a newborn Christian-you impacted my life for my whole life!3
Judy Allison Spees Billy died the same year as his musical friends Keith Green and Charlie McPheters. When I wonder if he has hanged out with them and helped send down so much great worship I think he may be spending time with Bach.4
Philip Cole Yep there’s that smile that touched many people and that was before they heard the words he spoke or the songs he wrote…… Wow its a celebration in heaven today with the best music 🎶 being sung4
Judy Allison Spees Judy and Billy’s wedding he wrote a wedding song Hey This Is Our Wedding Day
