Billy Hoffman (born in Arkansas and raised in Poteau, Oklahoma) is an American country music singer. Hoffman was born with a hearing problem and is only three percent away from being deaf. He also learned to play guitar to gain dexterity after being born with underdeveloped hands.
In 2000, he was the first artist signed to Critter Records, which was managed by Joe Stampley. Stampley produced Hoffman's debut album, which included a cover of Paul Davis' "I Go Crazy." The album received a mixed review from Ray Waddell of Billboard, who wrote that "while lacking the vocal gymnastics heard in much of what populates current country radio, Hoffman's easygoing style mostly serves this material well." Two singles from the album charted on the BillboardHot Country Singles & Tracks chart.
