Country superstar Cam surprised singer/songwriter Sam Williams at the final stop on her OH, THE PLACES WE’LL GO! European tour Saturday night, inviting the son of Hank Williams Jr. and grandson of Hank Williams Sr. to make his Grand Ole Opry debut in front of a sold-out crowd at Berlin’s Huxley’s Neue Welt. Wide Open Country broke the news of the performance, which will take place October 9.
“The moment Cam asked me, I was too focused on our last night singing together and it almost didn’t even register in my brain,” Williams told Wide Open Country of the surprise invite. “After singing ‘Jolene,’ I came off stage and balled like a baby. I pressed an emergency exit button side stage, frantically trying to FaceTime everyone I knew. This happening is truly historic and I am so excited.”
