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
