Sam Williams

Sam Williams will be making his Grand Ole Opry debut on October 9 after Cam surprised him on her European tour by inviting him on stage.
Williams – who is the son of Hank Williams Jnr and therefore the grandson of Hank Williams Snr – has been supporting Cam on her ‘Oh, The Places We’ll Go!’ tour, which has included a date at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire.
During a gig in Berlin, Germany, Cam took the opportunity to bring Williams out for a duet and it was at that point she invited him to perform at the iconic Nashville venue for the very first time.
Speaking to ‘Wide Open Country’ after the performance, Williams said that it didn’t quite sink in at first, but when it finally did, he was overcome with emotion and got in touch with just about everyone in his contact book.
“The moment Cam asked me, I was too focused on our last night singing together and it almost didn’t even register in my brain,” Williams said. “After singing Jolene, I came off stage and balled like a baby. I pressed an emergency exit button side stage, frantically trying to FaceTime everyone I knew. This happening is truly historic and I am so excited.”
Sam Williams supported Cam all around Europe and performed in capital cities such as London, Amsterdam, Paris, Belfast and Berlin.
