SAM WILLIAMS TO JOIN CAM ON "OH, THE PLACES WE'LL GO!" EUROPEAN TOUR

09/08/2019

NASHVILLE, TN (August 9, 2019) - Singer/songwriter Sam Williams will cross the pond with Cam on her "Oh, The Places We'll Go!" European tour. Kicking off in Belfast, Ireland on September 1, the eight-date run will wrap on September 14 in Berlin, Germany. "The son of Bocephus, the brother of Holly and the grandson of Hank [who] carries his family's legacy forward with starting creativity" (Music Row) looks forward to representing his unique heritage with audiences in new cities as he embarks on his first official tour and travels overseas for the first time.


Williams shares, "I couldn't be more excited for this opportunity! I've never been on an official tour and I've never been to Europe. I've been manifesting the idea of it, and even writing songs about it, and to have it happening feels surreal. Cam is such a true talent and an overall graceful act and I'm so honored she chose me to join her. I'm so eager to see new places and to get to know those abroad, and I hope they'll enjoy getting to know me, too."

Williams released his current single, "Gemini" on June 21, the last day of Gemini season. Praised by many for his voice "exuding equal parts power and grace" (Rolling Stone) that seems to "rise from another spiritual plane," (Sounds Like Nashville) the CMT "Must-See Indie You Need To Know" is poised to leave his own legacy on country music, unafraid to push his own creative limits and break through the self-inflicted limitations that threaten the genre as a whole.

Gemini’s are known for keeping others on their toes. Just like his father, Hank Williams, Jr., Blake Shelton, Prince, Paul McCartney, Boy George and more, the charismatic acts excel at almost anything they put their minds to. Inspired by “the new Nashville” with artists like Margo Price, Tyler Childers, Ruston Kelly and more blurring genre lines, Williams feels it’s his time to share the art he’s been crafting in the studio. Influenced by artists from Billie Eilish to Dolly Parton, his sister Holly Williams to Drake, it’s easy to see why so many have been keeping an eye on him in anticipation of what’s to come. 

 

ABOUT SAM WILLIAMS:
“As the son of Hank Williams, Jr., Sam Williams inherited the gift of wondrous country lyricism and a vocal talent that his father believes is best in the family.” (CMT) With a striking tone and poetic approach to songwriting, Williams is poised to leave his own legacy on Country Music, unafraid to push his own creative limits and break through the self-inflicted limitations that threaten the genre as a whole. Inspired by the tremendous growth of Nashville with artists like Margo Price, Tyler Childers, Ruston Kelly and more defying genre lines, the CMT “Indie You Need To Know” feels it’s his time to share his work. Born in Nashville and raised on Highway 79 in Paris, TN, Williams cared more about sports than he did following in his father’s footsteps. Now 22, he’s found himself using poetry and songwriting as therapy to get out the things he needs to say, important to him that it’s straight from the heart. In 2016, he released his debut single “Darkwater” following up with “The Lost Grandchild’s Plea” in 2018, an ode to his grandparents he never knew, Hank and Audrey Williams. Williams has a global publishing and artist development deal with Get It Done Music Entertainment (Missi Gallimore / Gary Borman) & Kobalt. He’s collaborated with writers Lori McKenna, Shawn Camp, Dan Tyminski, Jim Lauderdale, Mary Gauthier and more, penning over 40 songs in the past year. He’s played a handful of shows across the country, some appearances opening for the likes of Corey Smith and Frank Foster. Looking ahead, he’s excited for what’s to come and for the own torch he’s sure to carry, not allowing anyone to put it out.
