Acclaimed Nashville-based singer-songwriter Holly Williams is ready to take to The Highway in support of her self-released third studio album due February 5 on her own imprint, Georgiana Records. Kicking off the first leg of her U.S. tour at New York's Joe's Pub on January 24, Williams will also play Hotel Café in Los Angeles on February 6 and the Belcourt Theatre in Nashville on February 12.
"The Highway," says Williams, "is my personal favorite track on the record. I was pulling up to the gas station and I started singing the chorus (came out of nowhere, prayers answered!). I went home and grabbed my guitar, I was so thrilled about this lyric because it was exactly where my longing has been. This came from a very personal place. Recently I've begun to really miss the road." Check out the trailer for The Highway at AOL's The Boot: http://aol.it/VvpXC1. Free download of "Drinkin'" available at www.hollywilliams.com.
Recorded at The Art House in Nashville, The Highway was produced by Charlie Peacock (The Civil Wars) co-produced by Williams, and engineered and mixed by Richie Biggs, with additional engineering and mixing by Nick Autry and Chuck Ainlay. Featuring 11 original compositions written or co-written by Williams, the album includes guest vocals from Jackson Browne ("Gone Away From Me"), Jakob Dylan ("Without You"), Dierks Bentley ("'Til It Runs Dry") and Gwyneth Paltrow ("Waiting On June").
The daughter of Hank Williams, Jr. and granddaughter of the legendary Hank Williams, Holly released her debut album, The Ones We Never Knew (Universal South), in 2004, and the follow- up. Here With Me (Mercury Nashville) in 2009. With a passion for style and fashion, Holly is theowner of H. Audrey, a clothing boutique in Nashville. She also shares her love of food and travel on her blog, The Afternoon Off—http://theafternoonoff.com.
