Music saved Billy Strings’ life and secured his future. “I had decided this music stuff could save my life,” Strings, born William Lee Apostol, told The New York Times. “Music was my one opportunity – otherwise, I was going back to being a meth head, overdosing, prison. I was not going to mess up with booze.”
