Review for Don Williams:
There are few American classics these days, but Don Williams is certainly one of them. With a warm hickory baritone that balances strength with a gentle concern, he draws his listener into the intimate world of an old friend, someone who cares deeply about you and the quality of your life … and who will always offer a hand when you need it.
“I don’t think there’s anything we have to do daily in our walk that’s more important than how we deal with each other,” Mr. Williams confesses. “To me, it’s everything. So when you’re looking for songs, if they can express that, then you’ve found something special.” Without a doubt Williams, whose hits with the likes of "Good Ole Boys Like Me," "I Believe In You," "Love Is On A Roll," "Amanda" and "Tulsa Time," have always had a knack for finding songs that speak directly to people’s hearts.
Enlisting the help of his accomplished road band, Mr. Williams creates the kind of music that speaks to everyone. There’s a broken-in familiarity among his players that can’t be created merely by charts and musicians – and those lived-in grooves fit Williams like the custom-Stetson hat he’s know for.
On Feb. 23, 2010, the Country Music Association announced that Mr. Williams was to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Mr. Williams has called this “the biggest honor of my life.”
