Holly hits the highway

Holly Williams makes a striking individual statement with The Highway album and is to play Glee Club Nottingham on Sunday, June 29, on one of only three live UK dates.

Hailing from one of the most famous lineages in American music would surely create challenges for most artists to create their own identity, but not for singer-songwriter Holly Williams.

The granddaughter/daughter of Hank Williams, Sr. and Hank Williams, Jr. respectfully, makes her independence evident on her third studio album – The Highway – released on her own imprint, Georgiana Records.

A near-fatal car accident left the emerging songstress unsure if she would be able to play the guitar, but she overcame her injuries and began playing and writing songs and the third album is the result.

Tickets to see the Holly Williams Trio are priced at £13, and are available from www.glee.co.uk/nottingham Doors open at 7pm. Call the box office on 0871 472 0400.
