Nashville, Tenn. (January 10, 2014) –
The iconic “Gentle Giant,” country music’s Don Williams, is set to debut his new, 10-track studio album, Reflections, on March 11 via Sugar Hill Records. Williams, a Country Music Hall of Fame member, dominated for decades as a country hit maker and earned the name “the Gentle Giant” because of his unique blend of commanding presence and that laid-back, easy style—cutting across national and genre boundaries. Those personal and musical qualities that stood out strongly across the 1970s, ‘80s and ‘90s, came full circle both in 2012, as Williams delivered the masterful And So It Goes, and now, as he releases Reflections.

Reflections yields Williams at his finest, with his classic, often-copied-but-never-duplicated baritone front and center. With a healthy touring schedule and his second album in two years, Williams works hard to maintain that voice beloved by so many. His days off from a busy touring schedule are spent on his farm, where his voice is rested and his downtime very quietly enjoyed.

Featuring cuts from some of the songwriting craft’s finest including the legendary Townes Van Zandt, Merle Haggard and Jesse Winchester, Reflections finds Williams still incredibly tuned in to finding the songs that will touch his audience. As he has said about selecting songs: “The only description I’ve ever had for songs I choose to do is that they affect me emotionally and that, hopefully, they have something to say that will touch other people.”

Don Williams’ greatest asset has always been his impressive and diverse catalog of songs. The hundreds of memorable tunes in his still-growing repertoire—over 50 of them major hits—whether contemplative ballads, affecting love songs or change-up rhythm numbers, have always been a core Don Williams strength and focus. Williams and long-time producer Garth Fundis, who returns in the co-producer role on Reflections, each nod to the other with having contributed to their own song selection and sequencing skills.

Every song honors the storytelling history pure country fans have come to expect from Don Williams. “Stronger Back,” “Back to The Simple Things,” and “Working Man’s Son” celebrate the strength and integrity of everyday men and women and “I’ll Be Here In The Morning” and “I Won’t Give Up On You” are incredible narratives of love, delivered with understated complexity the way only Don Williams can.

Reflections, a newly minted part of a nearly 30-album career, proves once again that Don Williams’ music transcends genres and generations. Digging deeper into his natural, everyman approachability and revered musical style, Williams delivers a new collection of songs on Reflections that are sure to become instant classics.
