To me this country western artist is new..but. Don Williams is great.
Soft, kind, simple- gentle.

I discovered Don Williams a few months ago. My girl friend was playing one of his CDS while we working on a puzzel. I just listened and noticed some music soothing and just right.

Some of his tunes can be listened to over and over. So soft and beautiful.
Had to share this.

1. Agreed. Look back for good country music.
On a cold, rainy day try Tennesee Ernie Ford.

3. T-Bone Burnett was interviewed on NPR this week,
and he said that he wrote the songs for Jeff Bridges' character to sing in the new movie "Crazyheart" in a style most similar to Don Williams. :hi:

5. Beautiful voice, his voice also reminds me of Jim Reeves.
Both sang in the same style.

7. Met Don Williams at a Howard Johnson's in Redwood City
Edited on Mon Jan-18-10 12:51 PM by Amerigo Vespucci
He came out from the back, wearing a cowboy hat, with two blonde women, each taller than him, one on each arm. A woman in a booth spotted him and said "I love your music Don" and he gave a little smile, reached up, tipped his hat, and said "Thank you, m'am" and kept walking.

:rofl:

9. Yeah, he was one of my favorites as a kid. The Gentle Giant.
Soft, smooth voice with a lot of honesty in his voice. He is one of a kind.

I can't listen to him much anymore. I guess he sounds monotonous and dated--most older music does to me. But I have a lot of fond memories of his music. Enjoy him, he is one of the best country music produced in the 70s.

I love the guitar on this tune. It's absolutely perfect.
