Sam Williams is the spitting image of the late Hank Williams, Sr. his grandpa. Sam ponders when you’re literally “lil Hank Williams” in real life, for better or worse, and it’s not just for social media. This reflection shines in his debut video “The Lost Grandchild’s Plea” which exemplifies how his life is his art. It evolved from a little poem he wrote thinking about if his grandparents were in his life, what it would mean for him and what it would mean for them. This single relates how sitting in that pondering felt to Sam. The depth of this young man’s thinking enhances his songwriting ability.
Here is a sample in this verse he penned.
“I poured myself some TN Whiskey – In hopes I’d find something funny – In how the universe works – And the pressure of this name”
