Ten Essential Don Williams Classics

A Retrospective of Williams-Bob McDill Classics on Williams' 80th Birthday

If any one songwriter was crucial in forwarding Don Williams’ recording career, it was the limitless Bob McDill.

Of the 56 songs Williams charted between his first in 1973 and his last in 1992, McDill wrote or co-wrote 14, among them the classic “Good Ole Boys,” “Lord Have Mercy on a Country Boy,” “Rake and Ramblin’ Man” and “If Hollywood Don’t Need You.”

Williams, who died in 2017, would have been 80 on Monday (May 27).
