Don Williams (Born 1939)

Originally from Floydada, Texas, he spent seven years with the folk-pop group The Pozo-Seco Singers before coming to Nashville and embarking on a solo career in 1971. His smooth, romantic voice and straightforward vocals, combined with his imposing build, earned him the nickname “the gentle giant of country music.” He retired in 2006 after a career that included seventeen number one hits. His songs have been recorded by many other artists, including Johnny Cash, Eric Clapton, Lefty Frizzell, Sonny James, Charley Pride, and Pete Townshend.
