VIDEO: Holly Williams (Hank Jr.'s Daughter) Keeps It Country
As the daughter of Hank Williams Jr. (more than 70 albums), and the granddaughter of Hank Williams (country music legend), it's safe to say that Holly Williams feels a little pressure as she releases her second album, Here With Me, with this exclusive first-look video of "Alone."
But, says Holly, 28, "It's a healthy amount of pressure, enough to keep me working hard, but not enough to make me sleepless." Plus the security of home is never far away – her mother, Becky, joins her on the song "Mama" on The Tonight Show on Friday – and the album, which comes out Tuesday, stays comfortably true to her authentic country roots. "I love sitting down with just me and a piano and a guitar," she says. – Katie Kauss
