COUNTRY MUSIC LOSES ANOTHER GREAT ARTIST
  Bill Phillips was born in Canton, North Carolina on Jan 28, 1936. His professional music career started with the Old Southern Jamboree on WMIL in Miami in 1955. He moved to Nashville in 1957 and worked with Johnny Wright and Kitty Wells until the late 1970s. His biggest recording was entitled "Put It Off Until Tomorrow" which peaked on the country charts at #6 on April 2, 1966. The Decca recording featured uncredited harmony vocals by the song's composer, a very young and then little known Dolly PartonThis was the first recording that Dolly ever sang on.
