Singer songwriter H. Jack Williams talks about starting from humble beginnings, chasing his dream, and working with Academy Award winner Kevin Costner.

Guest Biography

You’d be hard-pressed to find a life, a career, or a body of work quite like that of singer/songwriter/performer/composer H. Jack Williams.

Jack himself credits equal parts luck, talent, and tenacity. “My whole life, I’ve gone out and gotten stuff done,” he says. “I think I have unique emotional connections within me, and I’ve always found a way to make that connection musically.” But for one of Nashville’s hardest-working songwriters and most in-demand co-writers – and now with flourishing work in film and television – it’s been a one-of-a-kind 40+ year ride with some of the biggest names in Folk, Rock, and Country. And in many ways, he’s just getting started.
