**Daniel Williams won two events this week! Open mic at Zac Brown's club Southern Ground Social Club AND the Texas Country Showdown in Newnan ,Ga ! **
Georgia is steadily producing some amazing country artists & Daniel Williams has a place among them....He is a young man with strong roots in gospel & country traditions & with a voice that continues to project all of this on every song he sings -whether it's a Dwight Yoakam or Waylon cover, or an original tune.
Daniel watched & played along with his grandfather, uncle, & his father as a kid. His fingers were too small for the guitar in the beginning, so his grandaddy Ernest Williams Jr. introduced the mandolin to young Daniel. He learned that the heart & soul of country music could be found in gospel singing & playing in church.
Some changes here & there....some lessons learned and left behind. The song about Love & the girl who believed in him, is a true story for Daniel.
Daniel has been nominated and was in the top six bands in Georgia-Country.com for the year 2012, & has been nominated in 2013 for Male Artist of the year. He also won the Georgia-Country Talent Showcase ,2013. He recently won the Open Mic Contest at Southern Ground Social Club in Senoia, Ga.
