FROM TPAC -- Topeka Performing Arts Center is proud to present country legend Don Williams in concert on Sunday, October 7th at 7:30pm. They came to call Don "the Gentle Giant" in the decades when he was a dominating country hit maker. His unique blend of commanding presence combined wtih his laid-back, easy style has appealed to men and women over the years, cutting across many categories. Don has said he never felt the need to sell somebody something, or to prove anything special.
On "And So It Goes," his newest musical offering released on the Sugar Hill label last June, that winning and self-assured ease is front and center again. The music style is still there, that's made Don a ballad vocal model for performing from Eric Clapton to Keith Urban (who's a guest on his new release too.
From 1974 to 1991, Don had at least one major hit every year, including such country standards as "Good Ole Boys Like Me, Till the Rivers Run Dry, It Must Be Love, I'm Just a Country Boy, and I Believe In You."
He also had a hit duet with Emmylou harris on Townes Van Zandt's "If I Needed You." Don was the CMA Male Vocalist of the Year in 1978; and his classic "Tulsa Time" was ACM Record of the Year the following year, in 1979. Just two years ago, Don Williams received country music's highest honor, induction in the Country Music Hall of Fame!
