The 67-year-old Williams has a long list of awards, beginning with his 1980 Grammy. He has won several more Grammy Awards and Emmy Awards through the years, and in 2007 was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Williams has been releasing studio albums since the 1960s, and in the ’60s had a string of Top 5 hits on the U.S. Country charts. But his greatest success came later in his career. He notched his first chart-topping hit in 1972, “Eleven Roses,” and ended the ’70s with two blockbuster hits, “Family Tradition” and “Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound.”
The ’80s were Williams’ biggest decade, featuring eight No. 1 hits. Among them were “Texas Women,” “All My Rowdy Friends,” “A Country Boy Can Survive,” “Mind Your Own Business” and “Born to Boogie.” Additionally, he had a number of other Top 10 singles in the ’80s. Only three of his singles he released in the ’80s peaked outside the Top 10, and none of them failed to chart.
Williams is still recording and releasing new material. His current single is “The Party’s On.” It is his second single from his 2015 album It’s About Time.
