In 1979, Don Williams won the “Single of the Year” for the song “Tulsa Time" at Academy of Country Music Awards.
For us to reminisce more of Don Williams, lend your ears to his 1979 winner single “Tulsa Time.”
The track rocked the airwaves in 1978. “Tulsa Time” changed everything, it is far different from Williams’ other utmost and smooth hits. It has a different sound with a mixture of little rockin’, movin’, and groovin’. Also, we are used to hearing the “Gentle Giant” Don Williams singing in a soft-toned voice with sweet harmony. Nevertheless, it sounded good, and it won.
