More than four decades after his first Top Ten country hit, singer Don Williams continues to be a popular concert draw throughout the world, thanks to his warm vocal style and easygoing nature both on and off stage. The influential Texas native, nicknamed the “Gentle Giant,” has just announced his latest tour, which launches on September 9th, in Dodge City, Kansas, and is slated to run through November. 100 Greatest Country Songs of All Time “Mercy, the fans have kept us going for years, and I am glad to share the music with them once again,” says the 76-year-old musician, whose two most recent LPs on Sugar Hill Records, And So It Goes (2012) and Reflections (2014) both reached the Top 20 on Billboard ‘s Country Albums chart. A member of the Sixties folk group, the Pozo-Seco Singers, Williams’ solo career was launched in 1971, with early hits including “Atta Way to Go” and “Come Early Morning.” His first Top 10 hit, “We Should Be Together,” was followed by such familiar tunes as “Rake and Ramblin’ Man” and “Tulsa Time.” In 1978, guitar great Eric Clapton covered Williams’ composition, “We’re All the Way.” That same year, Williams took home the CMA Male Vocalist of the Year honor.
