ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ron Williams "Texas Style" is the debut recording project from Williams on Heart of Texas Records.

"Texas Style" is filled with the kind of traditional hard core country sound that Williams grew up listening to while devoloping his own style.

Williams borrowed some classic songs from some legendary songwrites including "Playboy" composed by Eddie Miller and Bob Moore, "Where Are All The Girls I Used To Cheat With" by Whitey Shafer, "Somewhere Between" written by stepdad Merle Haggard and even a song contributed by his parents Leona and Ron Williams Sr. "Anything Goes Till Everythings Gone."

Williams shines on some new songs that are destined to be classics including two self written songs including "Alone With You" and "The Best Man." He also leans on producer Justin Trevino and Guyanne McCall's pen to add "This Time We're Going To Make It" and "Texas Honky Tonk."

"I am especially proud of my two duets on the project," Williams said. "Mom and I recorded 'Somewhere Between' for the album. We perform that song on nearly every show that we do together, so it was a natural song for us to record. My sister Cathy Lee also recorded 'This Time We're Going To Make It' and did a great job."

"Texas Style" was produced by Justin Trevino and features Trevino on bass and rhythm guitar. Bobby Flores contributed his magic fiddle to the project followed by Jim Loessberg on drums, Ron Huckaby on piano, Dave Biller on lead guitar and Johnny Cox on steel guitar.

"We are very proud of Ron's first album for Heart of Texas Records," President Tracy Pitcox said. "He is one of the greatest voices in Country Music and his future is very bright. We are excited about being a part of his great career."


Special Note From Ron Williams:

Some people call me lucky, but I’d call it blessed to be born into a music business family. My mom, Leona Williams has had an incredible career as an artist, touring with the likes of Loretta Lynn, Ernest Tubb and many others all through my young years. She has had songs recorded by such artists as Gene Watson, Tammy Wynette, George Jones, Randy Travis, Loretta Lynn, Hank Williams Jr., and others... including several #1 hits and a top ten duet with country legend Merle Haggard.

Strangely enough mom joined the Merle Haggard Roadshow back in the 70's and spent nine or ten years with Merle...the back half of those years spent in a marriage to Merle that didn’t last.

Later, she married an incredibly talented guitar player and songwriter name Dave Kirby. Dave penned hits such as “Is Anybody going to San Antone” by Charlie Pride, “Ain’t no good chain Gang” by Johnny Cash & Walon Jennings, “Memories to Burn” by Gene Watson, and many, many others. In fact, I could write a page on all of his accomplishments. Tragically , we lost Dave a couple of years ago.

You would think that music would have been all I had ever done, but in fact, I really didn’t find the courage to pursue music until after high school. It’s hard to raise your hand and say “I want to be a singer too” , when you’ve grown up around the best. But once I stepped into that studio and on that stage, it was over. I was hooked. Now after twenty years of performing and writing songs, I’m still doing what I love. I spent eight years as a staff writer at two major publishing companies here in Nashville where I had several songs cut.

My most successful song being a single recorded by Joe Diffie titled “Somethin’ Like This”, on the “Twice Upon A Time” CD. I also had an album released on a small independent label here in Nashville in 2005 that got lots of airplay and close to breaking into the top 40 charts.

I have also had the honor of performing on shows that featured such artists as Gene Watson, Marty Stewart, Mel Tillis, Craig Morgan, Travis Tritt, Mandy Barnett, Vern Gosdin, Sammy Kershaw, Lori Morgan, Clinton Gregory, and of course my mother Leona Williams. I have also had the great honor of working with Grand Ole Opry legends, such as Ferlin Husky, Charlie Louvin, Margo Smith, Jean Sheppard, Stonewall Jackson, Barbara Fairchild, Billie Walker, Jan Howard, Jett Williams, Jim Ed Brown and Helen Cornelius, Pretty Miss Norma Jean, Claude Gray, Jeannie Sealy, Wanda Jackson, Freddie Hart, and Bill Anderson. Also, such legendary Texas Artists as Darryl McCall, Justin Trevino, Johnny Bush, Frankie Miller, Curtis Potter, and Big Bill Lister.

Ron Williams "Texas Style" has a strong Texas feel and is something that I have wanted to do for some time.

I have been married for nearly nine years to my sweet wife Amy, and together we have two beautiful daughters named Lexie and Olivia. The support of my family is what keeps me going. If this business has taught me anything, its that you have to be persistent. I know I’ll always be making my kind of music.

How good is this album!!!!
This goes straight to the best of ... albums in my collection. I have not enjoyed a traditional country album as much as this one, in years! I know Ron is the stepson of Merle Haggard, but just how much does he sound like the great man himself? It's quite uncanny, & on some tracks you would swear it was Merle. This is also one of Justin Trevino's best works as producer. I have only one criticism of this album, & that is, the quality of the album cover could have been so much better - as it is, it seems like a back-yard job, rather than one fit for this superb album.

What a voice! Trully a classic. Put Strait, Jackson & Haggard together and you get Ron Williams. The best I heard in years.

Ron's music is outstanding! I was actually at my ex-husbands house laying in his tanning and listening to xm radio/Willies Place (now there's a country song for ya) and "A Bridge That Just Won't Burn" came on and I nearly splitt my head open trying to get out of the bed to look at the tv and see who the artist was. I was not familiar with Ron, so the following day at work I looked him up on-line. I am completely blown away by his rich vocals! And I do work in country radio and I would be honored to play his music. I encourage everyone to take a listen to Ron's music, you won't be disappointed!

Patrick Perlemoine
