The Daily Walk with Love
— Anyone who ever listened to country music (or even
most pop and rock radio stations) at all during the late 1970’s
and 1980’s knows Don Williams, who came to be known as “the Gentle Giant.”
Most people my age remember several of Don Williams’ songs.
He and Willie are my two favorite “mainline” country singers.
Sadly, and almost unnoticed, Mr. Williams recently
passed on at age 78.

Please also visit the official Don Williams Facebook page. Read the biography of Don Williams at Wikipedia. I really don’t think enough has been said about Don Williams’ songwriting abilities. His songs come across as typical old-style but “mainstream” seventies country, but they are a cut above the usual hits, really excellent.

Some of my favorite Don Williams songs include “I Wouldn’t Want to Live if You Didn’t Want Me,” “You’re My Best Friend,” “(Turn Out the Lights And) Love Me Tonight,” “Some Broken Hearts Will Never Mend,” “I’m Just a Country Boy,” “Listen to the Radio” and of course, “I Believe in You.” Wikipedia says that “only four of his 46 singles didn’t make it to the Top Ten.”
With his laid-back, straightforward vocals and large, imposing build, Don Williams came to be known as “the Gentle Giant.” That nickname was bestowed on him in the early ’70s, when he began a string of countrypolitan hits that ran into the early ’90s. Williams was never known as an innovator, but his ballads were immensely popular; in the course of his career, he had a total of 17 number one hits.
