Williams offspring sings record deal
Tuesday, June 8, 2021
– Sam Williams, the grandson of Hank Sr., signed a record deal with UMG Nashville.
The son of outlaw singer Hank Jr., Sam Williams has released music on his own.
"We are so proud and excited that Sam Williams is joining Universal Music Group," said Cindy Mabe, President UMG Nashville. "Sam's talent is timeless and boundless. He has such an incredible way of communicating and emotes as if he's channeling feelings from another place; somewhere deep inside himself. His powerful, soulful vocals combine with his introspective storytelling to fully immerse you into Sam's own life making you feel everything he feels. He's such a special talent, and I believe Sam's music will help lead country music into its next evolution."
Williams' upcoming release, "Glasshouse Children," is expected later this summer. Early releases from the debut album include "Shuteye," "Can't Fool Your Own Blood," "The World: Alone," and the most recent "10-4."
He made his national television debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in April performing "Can't Fool You Own Blood," a song which earned the soulful performer a standing ovation following his Grand Ole Opry debut.
Other Hank Jr. children in the music business include Hank Williams III, Holly and Hilary Williams.
