Williams Jr. Background
Williams' father was a legend in the music industry, and he passed his love for music and performing
onto his son. After his father's tragic and untimely death when he was just a child, Williams learned about music mainly from
his mother, who exposed him to great artists like Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, and Jerry Lee Lewis.

as a "Hank Williams impersonator", and while he enjoyed this for a while, he eventually realized that he wanted to develop
his own unique sound. He released a few songs while he was still trying to define his sound, achieving moderate success yet

Ajax Peak in Montana, the snow collapsed from beneath his feet and he plummeted nearly 500 feet onto a rock. He sustained
severe injuries, resulting in many scars and disfigurement to his face, but by some stroke of luck he survived. To hide all
his disfigurement from the accident, he grew his beard out and started to wear hats and sunglasses, elements that became intrinsic
to his signature look.
After this life-altering event, Williams knew he had to find his own sound and follow his own
creative passions. After that realization, Williams became a huge country sensation and has won numerous awards and accolades.
