iTunes Review

Known as "The Gentle Giant" for his formidable size and penchant for poignant, laid-back ballads and mellow, countrypolitan sounds, Don Williams, a Country Music Hall of Famer, returns with his first new album in eight years. It sounds as if it could have been recorded and released 20 or 30 years ago, such is its adherence to Williams' trademark style. Vince Gill, Alison Krauss, Chris Stapleton, and Keith Urban guest, with Krauss providing the biggest kick with her vocal and fiddle performance on the ballad "I Just Come Here for the Music." Gill and Urban join for the ballad "She's with Me" and the upbeat "Imagine That," which features a rhythmic shuffle not unlike Williams' hit "Tulsa Time." "First Fool in Line" throws Spanish guitar into the mix. Williams' unhurried delivery speaks with the maturity and wisdom of age. His songs play out like heartfelt observations on a world where styles may change but human truths never do.

A true legend!!

Don is truly one of a kind. Love it!!

He still soothes me

I was thrilled when I found that DW was touring and also put out a new album. I sure hope he plays in my area (Pacific Northwest) after his Europe tour.

DW has been my top-played country artist for many years (I am now 45). His Greatest Hits album is my favorite. In playing DW's new album, "And so it Goes," I was very curious to know what he/the songs would sound like. My first reaction was relief, as it instantly reminded me of how soothing his voice is. As I continued through the album, I continued to feel soothed and enjoyed the gentle sound of him that I have been so familiar with all of these years.

Perhaps because I am so partial to his Greatest Hits, I would choose those songs over this new album, however, his voice is still so great and comforting in each new song, so I still found it very pleasing and will include it in my playlist. I bet before long I will find that I really enjoy them mixed in with his Greatest Hits/older songs as my playlist shuffle-plays through his songs. There is an added specialness knowing that he was willing to tour and put a new album out after so many years. Don William's is a true country music star legend, in the simplest of ways. I am so pleased he is again sharing his talents and added songs to his collection for us to enjoy.

And So It Goes

One of the greatest albums of 2012, and that's saying a lot!!

With his laid-back, straightforward vocals and large, imposing build, Don Williams came to be known as "the Gentle Giant." That nickname was bestowed on him in the early '70s, when he began a string of countrypolitan hits that ran into the early '90s. Williams was never known as an innovator, but his ballads were immensely popular; in the course of his career, he had a total of 17 number one hits. Williams began playing guitar when he was child, learning the instrument from his mother. As a teenager,...
