Memorial Service Set For Don Williams

Don Williams

A memorial service honoring Country Music Hall of Fame member Don Williams will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 27. The ceremony will be held in the CMA Theater at the Country Music Hall of Fame (located at 222 5th Ave. S. in Nashville) for the music industry, friends and family. Doors will open at 4 p.m. with the memorial service commencing promptly at 4:30 p.m.

Williams, 1978 CMA Male Vocalist of the year and known as the “Gentle Giant” for his mellow laid-back delivery of more than 40 Top 10 country hits during his five-decade career, died on Sept. 8 following a brief illness. He was 78. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to MusiCares, Music Health Alliance or a charity of your choice.
