Nashville singer/songwriter Sam Williams has shared the video for his latest single ‘Weatherman’, a cover of his father Hank Williams Jr.’s 1981 hit. The visual, which features footage from Williams’ show in London as direct support for country star Cam’s OH, THE PLACES WE’LL GO Tour, premiered with CMT Music – who claimed the track just may evoke “chills”.
“This live video marks a memorable time in my life and career,” said Williams. “It is the first song in my family’s catalogue I’ve covered, and my first time doing a live music video. ‘Weatherman’ means a lot to me. Getting to tour with Cam is something I never saw coming, and she became such an inspiration to me during the tour. Intimacy and truth shine through her show. She is always one hundred percent herself and I look up to her for it. I hope people see that in me in this video!”
He released previous single, ‘Gemini’ on June 21st – the last day of Gemini season. Praised by many for his voice “exuding equal parts power and grace” (Rolling Stone) that seems to “rise from another spiritual plane”, (Sounds Like Nashville) the CMT “Must-See Indie You Need To Know” is poised to leave his own legacy on country music, unafraid to push his own creative limits and break through the self-inflicted limitations that threaten the genre as a whole.
Gemini’s are known for keeping others on their toes. Just like his father, Hank Williams, Jr., Blake Shelton, Prince, Paul McCartney, Boy George and more, the charismatic acts excel at almost anything they put their minds to. Inspired by ‘the new Nashville’ with artists like Margo Price, Tyler Childers, Ruston Kelly and more blurring genre lines, Williams feels it’s his time to share the art he’s been crafting in the studio. Influenced by artists from Billie Eilish to Dolly Parton, his sister Holly Williams to Drake, it’s easy to see why so many have been keeping an eye on him in anticipation of what’s to come.
