One of the biggest stars in country music in the mid-1970s through late ‘80s, and Hall of Fame member, Don Williams, has died after an undisclosed illness.

A press release from the singer’s PR team confirms his death “after a short illness,” saying that funeral arrangements are pending. He was 78 years old.

American singer-songwriter Shooter Jennings took to Twitter after news of Don’s death broke to pay tribute.

He said:

“Sad about Don Williams but Troy Gentry was my friend. I had great times with him. I’m stunned, angry and upset at the moment. I’ll miss you.”

Country music star Travis Tritt also paid tribute.

He wrote:

“So sad to hear that “Gentle Giant” Don Williams has died! What an incredible legacy of great music he leaves behind. May he RIP.”

The Tulsa Time singer played his final tour in 2006, and in 2010 was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

In 1991, every single he released hit the Top 40 Billboard County charts.

He returned to the spotlight in 2012 with a new album, And So It Goes, and in 2014 with Reflections, which included contributions from stars Keith Urban, Vince Gill and Alison Krauss.

Williams retired in early 2016 after being forced to cancel a tour due to sickness. Yet in 2017, even as he stayed home, the singer enjoyed a higher profile than he had in years.

May his soul rest in peace and the bosom of Abraham.
