After his folk-pop trio the Pozo-Seco Singers disbanded in 1971, Don Williams moved to Nashville to pursue a career as a songwriter. Before long, he parlayed his gentle croon and laidback grooves into a string of chart-toppers such as “Till the Rivers All Run Dry” (1976). He became one of the biggest country stars in the world, as popular in England and Europe as in America.
