They came to call Don Williams "the Gentle Giant" in the decades he was a dominating country hit maker because of his unique blend of commanding presence and that laid-back, easy style that has appealed to adult men and women alike. If those personal and musical qualities stood out strongly across the 1970s, 80s and 90s, they are all the more distinctive in 2012. The hundreds of memorable songs in that repertoire - over fifty 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. Riding and crossing the line between country and pop, and all the more distinctive for doing it, Don brought a sound and sensibility to the country charts that proved a smash - a development that was initially a surprise even to him. In 2010, Don received country music's highest honor, with his induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
