Playing Kewadin Casino on April 3Friday, December 06, 2013 by: SooToday.com Staff
Dominating country music hit maker, Don Williams, “the Gentle Giant”, is set to perform at Kewadin Casinos DreamMakers Theater on April 3, 2014.
Tickets are $48.50 and $42.50 and will be on sale at 9 a.m. on Friday December 13, 2013.
This will be Williams’ first visit to Kewadin Casinos.
His unique blend of commanding presence and laid-back, easy style has appealed to country fans across national and genre boundaries.
If those personal and musical qualities stood out strongly across the 1970s, ‘80s and ‘90s, they are all the more distinctive in 2013, when so many country and pop records seem to work as check off lists of somebody’s idea of how to be a man, or hard-sell attempts to indicate affection for a woman.
Don Williams has never sounded like he felt the need to sell somebody something, or to prove anything.
On And So It Goes, available from Sugar Hill on June 19, 2013, that winning, self-assured ease is again front and centre, and the musical style that has made Don a ballad vocal model for performers ranging from Eric Clapton (with whom he’d traded songs - Tulsa Time, Lay Down Sally) to Keith Urban (who guests on this release).
One listen to the characteristically right-on-target vocals on this first Don Williams recording in eight years and his admirers will be wondering what he’s done to maintain that strength over the hiatus.
“Well, there are things that I don’t do,” Don laughs. “I don’t do a whole lot of sitting around chit-chatting, laughing, and carrying on - especially when I’m on the road, where that just makes you tired, anyway. Even at home on the farm there are literally days on end that I may not say anything but for an hour or two a day.”
In 2010, Don received country music’s highest honour, with his induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
“It’s an incredible honour, to be added to the caliber of people that are on that roster. It’s pretty overwhelming, actually.”
