Country Legend Don Williams has passed away on Friday (September 8) at the age of 78.
Born in Texas in 1939, Williams started his musical career at the ripe old age of three by winning a talent competition.
The singer/songwriter has 45 top ten hits, and 17 number ones through a career that started in the early 1970’s.
His style earned him the nickname “The Gentle Giant.”
With a little help from Jack Clement, he soon launched an illustrious career in the world of country music.
