UMG Nashville has announced the signing of singer-songwriter Sam Williams. The grandson of country pioneer Hank Williams and the son of outlaw legend Hank Jr., Sam Williams is the latest in a long line of American originals.
“We are so proud and excited that Sam Williams is joining Universal Music Group,” says Cindy Mabe, President UMG Nashville. “Sam’s talent is timeless and boundless. He has such an incredible way of communicating and emotes as if he’s channeling feelings from another place; somewhere deep inside himself. His powerful, soulful vocals combine with his introspective storytelling to fully immerse you into Sam’s own life making you feel everything he feels. He’s such a special talent and I believe Sam’s music will help lead country music into its next evolution.”
Sam’s Glasshouse Children is expected later this summer. Early releases from the debut album, “Shuteye,” “Can’t Fool Your Own Blood,” “The World: Alone,” and the most recent “10-4,” have garnered critical acclaim from American Songwriter, Billboard, NPR, The Tennessean, Rolling Stone and more.
