Take a musical journey exploring the life and career of Country Music Hall of Fame® member Don Williams, as some of country music's brightest stars join a three-day celebration of the Gentle Giant at Schermerhorn Symphony Center.
This concert extravaganza will give fans a chance to experience a first in country music history: Through technology and video footage, Don Williams will perform, once again, along with his touring band, the Nashville Symphony and different special guests each evening. The crowd will be welcomed by an exclusive video message from concert curator Keith Urban.
Fans can also view a very special memorabilia display, including Don’s 1971 MCI tour bus, “Gypsy Lady,” which carried Don from show to show for many years until his retirement. Inside the venue, patrons can view the medallion presented to Don as he was entering the Country Music Hall of Fame®, his legendary cowboy hat and jean jacket, some of his Gold records, and a few of his most recognizable guitars.
Don Williams was one of the earliest country artists to take their music globally. In addition to his North American success, the Gentle Giant toured extensively throughout Europe and Africa, and his legendary songs reached all corners of the globe and continue to capture the hearts of fans worldwide.
Don’s hits include: I Believe In You • It Must Be Love • Lord I Hope This Day Is Good • Tulsa Time
