Don Williams Tickets for Sale

Don Williams is a country music singer and songwriter born May 27, 1939, in Floydada, Texas. After seven years with the folk-pop group Pozo Seco Singers, he began his solo career in 1971, churning out popular ballads with 17 number one hits. His straightforward vocals, soft ballads and an imposing build earned him the nickname, the gentle giant of country music.

Born May 27, 1939 in Floydada, Texas, Williams was one of the biggest country music stars of the 1970s. He was a leading proponent of the countrypolitan sound, which was a conscious attempt to crossover to the Pop charts; he made it seem like an absolutely natural progression. Possessed of a resonant, unaffected voice, his singing seemed as natural as mellow conversation. Although he started recording in the mid-'60s, his career took off in '74 with his first number one hit "I Wouldn't Want to Live If You Didn't Love Me," which was only the beginning of a hit-recording streak that would last the next sixteen years. Although he slowed down considerably during the '90s, the quality of his work has not diminished. Throughout his career, Williams has been a friend and champion of songwriters, unafraid to tackle material that was offbeat or outside mainstream country. It didn't matter to him if a song was written by cult favorite John Prine or the legendary rock team Mick Jagger and Keith Richards; if Williams liked a tune, he recorded it.

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," 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.

"When you first start making records, all the songs are challenging and there's so much to talk about," Williams begins, explaining the challenges of maintaining one's artistic commitment a quarter of a century into a solo career. "But after you've done it for a while, it's hard to revisit the same places and still be believable."

"The longer you do it, the harder it becomes to do things that aren't just an echo of something you've already done. Of course, when you do lock into it, the fact that you've lived all those years and seen so much allows you to bring a lot of things to the song you couldn't have when you were starting out."

For Don Williams, trying to address the simple pleasures and the things that should last has always been his stock in-trade. And he's also always been something of an iconoclast in a town known for its assembly line approach to making music.
