Speaking of talent and great music, Don Williams can give you all. He is one of the best country artists that we have had. He might not physically with us, but he left music that we could remember him. One of the greatest hits he performed is “Endless Sleep.”
Dolores Nance and Jody Reynolds wrote the words and lyrics of “Endless Sleep.” Don Williams recorded and released the song in 1973 under his album “Don Williams Volume One.” The album includes his top charting singles “Amanda,” “I Recall A Gypsy Woman,” and many more.
Don Williams was known for his title “Gentle Giant,” because of his imposing height and warm, smooth bass-baritone voice, soft tones. But, all throughout his career, he has established two more things, consistency, and great songs.
Back in 1971, Williams went back to music and signed a contract as a songwriter for Jack Clement to Jack Music Publishing Company. He recorded demos for songwriter-producer Allen Reynolds, who later went on to help projects for Crystal Gayle, Garth Brooks, and many more.
However, other artists were reluctant to record some of Williams’ song. With this, Jack Clement decided to sign him up as an artist to his JMI Records. He then recorded his very first track “Don’t you Believe.” In 1974, Williams released his song “We Should Be Together” which peaked at No.5. Later that year, his song “I Wouldn’t Want to Live If You Didn’t Love Me” became his No.1 hit.
In the course of his career, he had a total of 17 hits that became number 1. Only 4 of his songs didn’t make it to top 10.
Wherever Don Williams right now, his legacy and work of arts will continue to flourish. It will influence more people inside and outside of the country music industry.
