Don Williams, the country singer famous for love ballads like I Believe In You, has died.
His publicist Kirt Webster said Williams, 78, died on Friday after a short illness.
The singer had 17 No 1 hits before retiring in 2016 and his mellow sound influenced a later generation of singers including Joe Nichols and Josh Turner and Keith Urban.

He had a lovely voice. And his type of country music I liked. They were all story songs

Sad to hear. I heard Eric Clapton on the radio singing a country song yesterday. Don Williams was a major influence on him.

You could hate C&W with a passion and still love every note from Don Williams. May he rest in peace.

Very sad.
How is it that all the best are departing of late?
The baby boomer generation on the way out.
