Holly Williams

Female “country” singers who look like Holly Williams are usually best avoided at all costs unless you like bland Nashville pop delivered with a pronounced nasal whine. It would appear that when it comes to country music you have to choose between beauty and talent. However, this rule obviously does not apply to Holly herself. Not only is she drop dead gorgeous but she is also real country and with a voice that means that she has no need whatsoever to resort to mentioning famous ancestors in order to get her music heard. Her new album, “The Highway” is bloody brilliant.

  1. Excellent! In a few hours I’ll know whether I’m one of the lucky 11,000 who’ll get tickets for this year’s Edmonton Folk Music Festival where I’ll get to hear her live!
