When someone like Don Williams releases a new song and video you want to pay attention. Back in the late ’70s and early ’80s Don was one of the biggest stars in country music. Even decades later a country fan like me was able to discover his music and fall in love. That shows real staying power and it’s one of the reasons Don is a legend.
Well Don has new music out and it’s really good. Check it out.
Imaging That – Don Williams
The song is about a guy that wishes he could still be with the one he loves. In that regard the song is kind of sad, but it doesn’t take on that tone when you listen and watch. The melody is a bit more cheery than that and it really works well.
The sound is classic Don Williams. His voice sounds really good and I like the way the sound was modernized a bit. It sounds like something that could play really well today with the modern country fans. I think that was the point. I’m sure the plan was to introduce Don back to the country audience today, but stay true to his roots.
It’s also pretty cool to have Keith Urban in the video. He’s playing during the song and he’s off in the background. It’s a nice little cameo from one of today’s biggest stars collaborating with a legend in the business.
It’s a good song and once again CMT Edge delivers music from country’s edge. I love that site.
