Don Williams joins the 2014 Star Line Up at the Oak Ridge Boys Theatre – Branson, MO
They came to call Don Williams “The Gentle Giant” in the decades he was a dominating country hit maker because of his unique blend of commanding presence and that laid-back, easy style. With hundreds of memorable songs in his repertoir-over fifty of them major hits-Don can still fill an auditorium.
Between 1974 and 1991, Don had at least one major hit every year, including such country standards to be as “Good Ole Boys Like Me,” “Till the Rivers All Run Dry,” “It Must Be Love,” “I’m Just a Country Boy,” “Amanda” and “I Believe in You.” He also had a hit duet with Emmylou Harris on Townes Van Zandt’s “If I Needed You.” Don was CMA Vocalist of the Year in 1978; his “Tulsa Time” was the ACM Record of the Year for 1979.
In 2010, Don received country music’s highest honor, with his induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame. He was still surprised: “I never really thought that I was viewed in the manner by the powers that be. It’s an incredible honor, to be added to the caliber of people that are on that roster. It’s pretty overwhelming, actually.”
