DON WILLIAMS, DEE EVENTS CENTER, Ogden, Friday, May 3, 7:30 p.m., $33-$38
Known in country circles as the "Gentle Giant," Don Williams is a true legend who doesn't get nearly the attention later in his career than his successful run as a singer/songwriter would seem to warrant. From the mid-'70s through the early '90s, Williams had an insane streak of hit singles--all but four of them reaching the Top 10, including songs like "Tulsa Time," "I Wouldn't Want to Live If You Didn't Love Me" and "Just As Long As I Have You." Williams decided to retire in 2006, but relaxing must not have treated him well, because he came back in 2012 with a new album on Sugar Hill Records called And So It Goes, an excellent collection that stands up to the best of his old catalog. Even so, you never know when Williams might decide it really is time to retire, so I'd suggest a trip to Ogden for this rare Utah appearance.
