ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Driving down a Texas highway, or a quaint country road, you'll often hear Beth's original songs from one of her 5 CDS on the radio, or you may catch her singing them in a concert setting. Be prepared to find yourself intently listening to Songs, Stories & Scriptures that move & inspire you.

"YODELIN' IN HEAVEN"

Yodelin' in Heaven is an album of Beth's "Greatest Hits", along with 2 never-before-recorded original songs. The goal of this project was to have an entire CD with positive, "Message Songs"....songs that offer hope, comfort, spiritual insight and reassurance that life & love never really end. An absolute "must have" for all friends & fans of Beth Williams music!!

"IN THIS OLD HOUSE"

Produced by Texas Music Legend, and Award Winning Producer LLoyd Maines, In This Old House was voted one of Austin's Top 10 Albums of 2001 and received a tremendous amount of critical acclaim and radio airplay. Of this CD, Bill Conner of KNBT in San Marcos, TX says "Beth's songs are not written as much as crafted, her soaring vocals add just the right amount of electricity to each track. When you hear her psychedelic yodel-chants on Track 5, you'll laugh out loud, and you'll be hooked for good."

"STEADY CONVERSATION WITH THE LORD"

Williams produced & released Steady conversation with the Lord, an album full of tried & true hymns, gospel favorites, and 2 of her own gospel compositions.
The least "arranged" of her CDs with only Beth on acoustic guitar/ lead vocals & harmonies and Ric McRae playing lead guitar (George Straits lead guitarist for over 15 years), a number of listeners have declared this to be their favorite recording of hers.

"ONE EMPTY CHAIR"

Williams produced & released One Empty Chair, which was recorded "live" in just 6 hours at Willie Nelsons ARLYN studios. Beth's second all original CD charted in Gavin & European charts, solidifying Beth's place in the Texas music scene. Having been taking her music ministry, "Keeping Time with Beth" to nursing homes & hospitals for 8 years at that time, the majority of the songs from One Empty Chair were written out of her experiences in these facilities.

"FIRST CLASS"

Although living in Texas, Beth's musical journey led her to recording in Nashville in 1987, where she was embraced with her debut, First Class, produced by Ed Penney. "Man at the Back Door," "Wrong Train," and "These Eyes" all charted in Billboard right in the middle of Steve Warner and Roseanne Cash. With producer Ed Penney, and musicians such as Sonny Garrish, Greg Galbraith, Pig Robbins, & Johnny Gimble, Beth's recording led to her being named one of the Top 10 "Best New Female Vocalists of the Year" by the ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC, "Best Female Performer" by INDEPENDENT NEWS, and "Best Independent Female Vocalist" by CASHBOX Magazine.
