Country crooner

art10137


Known for the tone in his voice that speaks to others with placidity and kindness that helped earn him the name Gentle Giant, the lama of country music Don Williams includes a stop in Springfield on his 2012 tour. He’ll perform one show at Sangamon Auditorium, UIS at 7:30 p.m. Aged like fine wine since picking up a guitar in high school and strumming through the 70s, 80s and 90s, this Nashville artist has a new album out June 19 titled And So It Goes. And so it goes that one of our most tender performers makes it look like it’s as easy as sipping sweet nectar. Perhaps you remember two of Williams’ popular songs, “I Believe in You” and “Lord, I Hope This Day is Good.”
