This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to the winner, Melissa.
Sure. Country legend Don Williams is the singer of hits like “Tulsa Time,” “I Believe in You,” “It Must Be Love” and “Good Ole Boys Like Me.” Those are awesome old country songs.
And sure, Williams was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2010 for his contributions to the genre.
It’s this quote in response to how his voice has remained strong despite an eight-year hiatus from the business, however, that best illustrates why Williams has come to be called the “Gentle Giant” of country music.
“I don’t do a whole lot of sitting around chit-chatting, laughing, and carrying on—especially when I’m on the road, where that just makes you tired, anyway,” he said. “Even at home on the farm there are literally days on end that I may not say anything but for an hour or two a day.”
What a badass.
Williams will be at Walton Arts Center on Tuesday, Oct. 9, and we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away to the show. Try to win ’em.
