NASHVILLE, Tenn. (CelebrityAccess) — Country music legend Don Williams will be memorialized in a series of concerts in Nashville later this year.
Set to kick off on October 31st, Don Williams: Music & Memories of The Gentle Giant will feature three nights of Don Williams’ music with special guest singers accompanied by Williams’ touring band and the Nashville Symphony Orchestra.
The concerts will also feature archival material, including videos of historic Williams performances, curated by Keith Urban.
“Don Williams and his music are strong threads in the tapestry of my life,” said Urban. “I jumped at the chance to play even a small role in this incredible concert experience. There is no better way to celebrate him and his legacy than reliving those musical moments and I’m honored to be part of continuing to share his story and music.”
A touring version of the show, also curated by Urban, is planned but dates have not been announced. More information is available through Keith Naisbitt at APA.
Williams died in 2017 but left a legacy as one of the greatest recording artists in country music history. The Hall of Famer scored 45 top ten country singles, including “Tulsa Time” and “Lord, I Hope This Day Is Good.”
