New Jersey's Country Duo Williams Honor Raise Expectations On Sophomore Effort "eX"

by Rich and Laura Lynch

The Jersey Shore's first ever country duo reached great heights when their self-titled debut dropped in 2015. Now, after an extended album cycle and an unexpected additional delay brought on by the global pandemic - the pair have returned with their extraordinary follow-up "eX" which finally saw the light of day with a release party held during CMA Week in Nashville on June 09, 2022 at the Cambria Hotel's True Music Room. By all accounts - the wait was worth it.


Williams Honor Release "eX" in Nashville.

Comprised of the striking Reagan Richards and the uber talented Gordon Brown both are no stranger to New Jersey or Nashville stages. For the crowd gathered at the Cambria they offered a set of music that included a new Johnny and June inspired number that proved their dedication to traditional country roots was still intact albeit with a modern spin and an eye toward country radio.

They also delivered the song that really delivered for them in 2018 when their single "No Umbrella" cracked the Music Row Country Breakout Top 30. In a live and stripped down setting (Reagan and Gordon were joined by a third player for this show) their powerful track still had all the heart string pulling emotion pumping away.

But, it was the final song they played in Music City that just might be their calling card to even greater success in the future. "Step" was a brilliant bit of songwriting that opened with the military themed cadence of left, left, left, right, left before blossoming into a boot stomping romp that is sure to make its way to the line dancing halls across the land very soon. This particular song was exceptional because it keeps their dual mission statement of honoring the pair's veteran fathers who gave the band their name while excelling as a new honky-tonk anthem for the ages. Well done, Williams Honor!

Reagan and Gordon were available after the show to meet, greet and sign copies of the new record for the fans in Nashville. But, be aware that the new collection did come with just a bit of a New Jersey attitude as the album was marked with an advisory label which in a way makes sense as it contains great, timely music and an "eX" rating.


Williams Honor - the dynamic duo have done it again at the Cambria.
