Fusion Music has partnered with Don Williams' long-time manager, Robert Pratt, to consult on business development for the Country Music Hall of Fame member's estate. And located in the press release on this new business deal - almost in a throwaway line- is a hint that new projects are on the horizon to delight fans:
"Details on a live music experience and new music are expected to be released soon."
With that simple line, excitement builds that there could be more to the Don Williams musical legacy. Are there recordings out there that didn't make albums? Is there an album out there that didn't see a release?
"Don Williams' iconic catalog of music continues to react with fans around the world," says Daniel Miller, Fusion Music Managing Partner. "His music has spanned more than five decades, and we're honored to support his legacy."
Williams was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2010 and was a member of the Grand Ole Opry. In addition to his recording career, he appeared in the Burt Reynolds classic films W. W. and the Dixie Dancekings and Smokey & The Bandit II and appeared as a guest performer on The Dukes of Hazzard. While his legendary status in the U.S. is well-documented, Williams is a beloved international star, with a massive fan base spanning across the globe.
