William never finished high school, and ran away from home at the age of 15 so he could become part of the Country Music scene.
In 1966, he recorded under the name of Brian Stacy, and worked at RCA Records in the early seventies. While at RCA, he signed with a record label owned by Motown, but he needed a stage name so he could keep his job at RCA. He chose T.G. Sheppard.
T.G. Sheppard placed fourteen songs at the top of the Country chart between 1974 and 1986. His real name is William Neal Browder.
Tune in next Saturday, April 7 at 9:20, for more with T.G. Sheppard.
