Country music is more than just a cowboy hat and boots. It’s standing by your word, honoring a handshake, and working hard. Country music is not about where you’re from or what you wear; it’s about how you live. And, Wynn Williams lives country music. This former rodeo cowboy is the kind of entertainer that puts his fans and his show first – always engaging with his audience before, during, and after he’s on the stage. His contagious smile and well-known, genuine kindness are only a few of the many things that put Wynn in the arena with those legendary artists that carry around the mantra of having “the whole package.”
Wynn grew up in Weatherford, TX while being exposed to classic country music from a young age. He’s stayed true to those roots throughout his life and that shines in his Neo-traditional style of music not only at his shows but in his recorded catalog as well. Upon graduation from college in 2016, Wynn rode straight into a career as a full-time artist cutting his teeth in small bars and restaurants across Texas, at the time promoting his six-song Words Fly EP. He spent several years developing himself creatively and artistically, at the same time soaking up everything he needed to know to be successful in a quickly changing, tough music business. His sophomore project, a self-titled fourteen-track album released in 2020, busted the doors open for Wynn as he toured the region, crossing state lines and time zones. His breakout track “Tornado” has become a fan favorite, garnering popularity for its sleek, mysterious melody and polished lyrics that tell a story of a bucking horse’s journey as an animal-athlete on the rodeo circuit. All while touring from show to show, Wynn spent the weeks in-between writing and working on new songs as well as joining the roster at Lytle Management group including Gary Allan, Gene Watson, and Jordan Gray, formerly representing Joe Nichols, Chris Young, and Scotty McCreery.
In 2021, Wynn released “Long Gone,” a feel-good song about a girl breaking the chains of a relationship on the rocks and chasing her own dreams. With even more tracks up his sleeve including his summertime track “Down in Mexico,” reminiscent of country music in the early 00s, and his highly anticipated song “I Love Her For Leaving,” 2021 is shaping up to be a pivotal year for Wynn’s organization as he is aggressively achieving his goals after a year of adversity following the Covid-19 pandemic.
The 27-year-old lives by the saying “No one is going to work harder for you than you,” and it shows in everything he does. There’s not an artist out there that will outwork Wynn Williams, and because of that, he is going to do great things, not only for himself and his team but for country music as a genre. At the end of the day, it’s all about the music, and Wynn is dedicated to creating songs that tell a story and share a message, something that he believes is missing in the current landscape of country music. Earning fans one show and song at a time, Wynn Williams truly does live country music, and his time to shine is on the horizon.
