Sam Williams is a name that country fans are going to become increasingly familiar with the talented musician continually growing in popularity with each release. The singer is gearing up to release his debut album Glasshouse Children this summer, preceding the LP with new single 10-4.
New single 10-4 is co-written by Sam and Daniel Tashian (Kacey Musgraves, Lee Ann Womack) and produced by Jaren Johnston (Thomas Rhett). Sam’s heartfelt vocals croon “We’re going down to the river / We’re gonna find us a waterfall / We’re jumping in / The saint and sinner / I asked her if she’d love me and she said 10-4…” on the track which centres on the purest idea of hopeful idyllic love.
Sam is the grandson of country pioneer Hank Williams and son of outlaw legend Hank Jr., yet Sam’s stories are more introspective and self-reflective than you might think – as seen on tracks such as Can’t Fool Your Own Blood, The World: Alone and Shuteye – which as set to feature on Glasshouse Children. He notes: “When you’re coming out of adolescence and into early adulthood, you’re really reconciling where you come from with who you are and who you want to be.”
Sam continues: “At the end of the day, I wasn’t interested in making something just to say I did it or to pat myself on the back for honoring some kind of family tradition. A legacy doesn’t mean anything if you’re not carrying it on with truth and integrity.”
Glasshouse Children is due this Summer. Release date and tracklist to follow. You can stream 10-4 above.
