Sam Williams Lives Up to His Family Legacy with a Flashy Livestream in Nashville

by Rich and Laura Lynch

The crown on his silhouette displayed on the big screen behind the stage revealed that the young musician Sam Williams is very clearly aware of his royal musical lineage. But, the likeable singer came off more confident than cocky during a high-profile gig that was livestreamed from lower Broadway in Nashville, Tennessee on July 14, 2022.

Perhaps, that's why family friends and companions from the music industry like Dolly Parton and Keith Urban stepped up to make an appearance on his solid 10-track debut Glasshouse Children that reveals the youngest son of Hank Williams Jr. to be a musical force to be reckoned with as he makes a name for himself in the Country Music Capitol of the World.

But, as stylistically removed as his father was from Hank Williams, Sam is charting his own course with music that incorporates his own favorites genres including hip-hop, pop, and R&B even as he has composed a commanding catalog of tracks with some of country music's most successful writers. So, the mix finds him quickly moving to the mainstream with a voice that some are calling the best in music at this moment in time.

Sam made a solid statement on his debut album - Glasshouse Children.

In Nashville, Sam was in control as he emerged dressed in a flashy blue fish-scale mirror suit before diving right in to his most successful single to date "Wild Girl". He explained that his attire was inspired by a children's story book and had a quick laugh at his expense. Sam also pointed out a fan in the audience wearing one of his father's concert tees and dedicated a track to him.

Williams and his band were impressive and composed during the 15-song, hour-long showcase that featured many tunes from his first record and a few that will make it into his next project. But, it was the closing track "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" - written and first recorded by his grandfather - that really underscored the historic nature of this evening's performance by the next in line from a truly regal and royal musical family. Sam is clearly an artist on the rise and one who should ascend to even greater heights as the future unfolds.

Sam's band impressed over the course of 15 songs played on lower Broad.
