Don Williams, country music's 'gentle giant,' dead at 78

Standing over six feet tall, with a smooth baritone and soft-spoken nature, Williams was known as the "Gentle Giant" of country music. He was a staple of country radio in the 1970s and '80s, releasing 16 No. 1 songs between 1974 and 1985. Over the course of his solo career, he recorded numerous songs now regarded as classics, including "Good Ole Boys Like Me," "Tulsa Time," "I Believe in You," "Lord, I Hope This Day is Good" and "It Must Be Love."

Don Williams, Singer of Plain-Spoken Country Songs, Dies at 78

Nicknamed the Gentle Giant (even though his height of 6 feet 1 inch may not have quite warranted it), Mr. Williams was adept at writing and recording plain-spoken material extolling the virtues of romantic commitment.

"In giving voice to songs like 'Good Ole Boys Like Me,' 'Lord, I Hope This Day Is Good,' and 'Amanda,' Don Williams offered calm, beauty, and a sense of wistful peace that is in short supply these days," Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum CEO Kyle Young said in a statement Friday.
