Album: Gentle Giants: The Songs of Don Williams
Release Date:
May 26th
Don Williams may have just retired last year, but the legacy of the iconic country singer is so deeply felt in the songwriting community that a stellar tribute album is already on its way. Gentle Giants: The Songs of Don Williams boasts contributions from Jason Isbell, John Prine, the Pistol Annies and Garth Brooks – just to name a few – all of whom offer their own takes on some of Williams' most iconic songs like "Tulsa Time," "Love Is on a Roll" and "Good Ole Boys Like Me." Proceeds from the Garth Fundis-produced album will benefit MusiCares, and it hits shelves on the eve of Williams' 78th birthday. B.M.
