Born on November 15, 1928 in Audubon, IA, Bill Fries grew up in a musical family in which both his parents were musicians.

Bill inherited a love for music and mastered the clarinet in grade school.   Later, Bill was a drum major at his high school and a member of the concert band at the University of Iowa where he majored in fine arts.

After a stint in television both behind and in front of the camera, Bill moved into advertising with the B & J Agency in Omaha.  One campaign for the Metz Baking Company set the stage for a new career for the advertising director.  Bill won a Clio for "Best Television Campaign" which featured C.W. McCall (a trucker for Old Home Bread), Mavis (a waitress) and a truckstop (The Old Home Filler-Up An' Keep On-A Truckin' Cafe).

A friend then suggested he do a recording as "C.W. McCall" and cut The Old Home Filler-Up An' Keep On-A Truckin' Cafe on American Gramaphone which was later picked up by MGM.

After six albums of original material on MGM and Poldor, Bill decided to leave the recording business and settled in Ouray, Colorado where he served as the town's mayor.

Bill and his wife, Rena, still live in and enjoy the San Juans
