"She's Damn Good" - BFP Music

“Williams has recorded her most accomplished, mature and world weary album. Even Hank Sr. would
be proud.”—American Songwriter

 “Amid a raw yet seamless blend of piano, acoustic guitar and subtle rhythms and sonic accents, her songs seek something true amid the bumps and bliss of daily life. She makes listeners feel why that search is important.”—Associated Press

 “The Highway is a simpler, more stripped-down affair, full of rootsy songs that emphasize storytelling
more than in the past.”—Rolling Stone

“Whiskey-soaked, honey-sweet country laments.”—ELLE

 “A breath of fresh Americana heir within country music's royal dynasty.”—Huffington Post
“Williams has returned with her third album, The Highway, a collection of quiet, mostly acoustic songs
that contain her most personal lyrics to date.”—Garden & Gun

The Highway shows the full confidence of an artist who has come into her own with songs that deliver characters
and stories with a yearning and warmth that draws us into each world she ably portrays.”—Turnstyled, Junkpiled

 “Williams fully inhabits the songs on The Highway.”—All Music Guide
“The best music of her career.” –Roughstock

A full list of tour dates attached.


Recorded at The Art House in Nashville, The Highway was produced by Charlie Peacock (The Civil Wars), co-produced by Williams, and engineered and mixed by Richie Biggs, with additional engineering and mixing by Nick Autry and Chuck Ainlay. Featuring 11 original compositions written or co-written by Williams, the album includes guest vocals from Jackson Browne (“Gone Away From Me”), Jakob Dylan (“Without You”), Dierks Bentley (“’Til It Runs Dry”) and Gwyneth Paltrow (“Waiting On June”).
The daughter of Hank Williams, Jr. and granddaughter of the legendary Hank Williams, Holly released her debut album, The Ones We Never Knew (Universal South) in 2004, and the follow- up, Here With Me (Mercury Nashville) in 2009. With a passion for style and fashion, Holly is the owner of H. Audrey, a clothing boutique in Nashville.
