SEPTEMBER 8
DON WILLIAMS DIED TODAY
The gentle giant was an American original and a really lovely man.
I first photographed Don Williams in England at the Wembley Country Music Festival, in 1977. My photographs, in part, led me to Nashville.
I loved the records from the 70's onwards. I like millions of others was a Don Williams fan.

I am fortunate to have worked with him a few times and for Don to have visited my house for this photo session in '96.

The crowd went crazy for Don Williams. After a unique amazing set, he spoke gently to the stadium audience, thanked them and took off his hat to tumultuous applause.

This photograph caught the attention of Jim Halsey and then ABC Records, a relationship that, in part, led me to Nashville.
