Country’s “Gentle Giant”

Published On May 23, 2015 | By Jeff Norgate | Jeff Norgate

He sang in a talent contest at the age of three, and won first prize.  He’s had 11 number one singles on the country chart including,  “I Wouldn’t Want to Live if You Didn’t Love Me” and, “I Believe in You”. He performed with, “The Strangers Two” and, “The Pozo-Seco Singers”.  Don Williams became a solo act in 1971, and hasn’t looked back.  His straightforward delivery, soft tones and large build have made his nickname, “Gentle Giant” stick.  “Tulsa Time” was Record of the Year in 1978 and he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2010.  Don turns 76 on May 27.
