SAM WILLIAMS SIGNS WITH UMG NASHVILLE
6/8/21

Rising country singer/songwriter Sam Williams has inked with UMG Nashville.

The grandson of country pioneer Hank Williams Sr. and son of outlaw legend Hank Williams Jr., Williams is carving out his own lane in country music and will release his debut album, Glasshouse Children, later this summer.

“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,” said UMG Nashville President, Cindy Mabe.

“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.” 

Ahead of the forthcoming album, Williams dropped singles like “Shuteye,” “Can’t Fool Your Own Blood,” “The World: Alone” and most recently “10-4.” Having made his late-night TV debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in April, the emerging star also earned a standing ovation following his Grand Ole Opry debut last year. Glasshouse Children is available for pre-order here.

Seen before heading to the nearest honkey-tonk to celebrate are (l-r) T.R.U.T.H. Management Owner/CEO Missi Gallimore, Williams, Mabe and UMG Nashville Chairman/CEO Mike Dungan.
