Johnny Williams is a finalist for 2020 SPBGMA Songwriter and Guitar Player of the Year !
Johnny Williams’ lead vocals have a dynamic force and magnetic charm that reveal a natural inclination for honest, sincere messages in his original songs. Johnny is an award winning singer and songwriter from Virginia. He took first place in the bluegrass division of the Chris Austin Songwriting Contest at Merlefest in 1998 and 1999. Besides with The Jeanette Williams Band, Johnny’s songs have been recorded by Junior Sisk and Rambler's Choice, Larry Cordle, Larry Stephenson, Honi Deaton & Dream, Mountain Faith, Doyle Lawson and Special Consensus to name a few.
Joe Ross, Bluegrass Reviewer
After several listenings to him the one recurring observation I had is that Johnny Williams is ‘the real deal’. His voice can sound like the most traditional bluegrass singer or have the cry of the most respected old time country singer, and his strong rhythm guitar playing is the glue that holds the performances together.
Greg Cahill, Special Consensus
When the top traditional bluegrass singers are named, you expect to hear Larry Sparks mentioned, and James King. Perhaps Danny Paisley as well, and Junior Sisk. But a name you don’t hear often enough is Johnny Williams, who can throw down the lonesome with the very best of them.
John Lawless, Bluegrass Today
“My friend Johnny Williams wrote this great song. My good buddy, band mate and banjo player extraordinaire, Jody King, suggested it to me when I was gathering songs for this new album. Being a former Navy guy myself, I just loved the tale. The longing for home when I was overseas, sometimes nearly unbearable, coupled with the great drive Johnny put into this piece made it a no brainer for me to cut. Thank you old buddy for allowing me to record this song!” (Larry Cordle)
