SLCene Suggests: Don Williams at Ogden’s Dee Events Center

by on October 25, 2012

DON WILLIAMS, DEE EVENTS CENTER, Ogden, Friday, Oct. 26, 7:30 p.m., $33-38

Don Williams is known in many quarters as the “Gentle Giant” of country music, his bulky frame and bass-y baritone combining to make the man look pretty imposing. But the 2010 inductee into the Country Music Hall of Fame is better known for his popular ballads like “Some Broken Hearts Never End” and easy-grooving country pop hits like “Tulsa Time” (my personal favorite). All told, he’s had 17 No. 1 country hit songs, and after “retiring” in 2006, he’s back with a brand new album, And So It Goes, and a tour stopping in Utah Friday. The album is a winner from beginning to end, and includes collaborations with Williams fans like Alison Krauss and Vince Gill. Williams is famous for shunning attention–he wouldn’t even give interviews when he was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame–and given his attempt to retire a few years back, consider this your last best chance to see the man perform in Utah.
