A Bourbon Angel
Does she drink bourbon? While it can't be confirmed, I'm willing to bet the Nashville singer-songwriter Holly Williams can throw a few back. Her music is inspiring and refreshing and her voice has been described as a one of a bourbon angel. Holly has the art of storytelling down pat, and that's a trait that is absolutely southern.
I'm sure that growing up the daughter of Hank Williams Jr. and the granddaughter of Hank Williams Sr. was not easy. With a family tree made up of country music legends, it's no surprise that her music is amazing. Her song "Waiting on June" is the story of her maternal grandparent's life written through the eyes of her sweet grandaddy. This song has brought tears to my eyes on more than one occasion and is now on my list of favorites. Listen here to her recent Back Porch Session for Garden & Gun's Charleston office.
