Rock ‘N’ Load caught up with Alex as he prepped to get out on the road to support his new album:
Waging Peace finds Williams growing – professionally and personally. Finding guitar-slinging inspiration in everything from Skynyrd and The Allman Brothers to Jerry Reed, plus the biting Texan poetry of songwriters Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt, Williams scours his very soul over twangy two-steppers such as ‘Old Before My Time’, epic anthems like ‘Waging Peace’, and introspective slow-burn ‘The Vice’. The result is a deeply personal listen that sees Williams learn to trust his instincts again with his signature blend of Rust Belt rock and pure country.
“Before I made my first record, I had not toured. I had no road band and a very slim amount of experience in the studio,” shared Williams. “These past 4 years since leaving Big Machine to become fully independent, and the release of ‘Better Than Myself’ has been a whirlwind. I’m very glad that I waited 5 years to make another record because it’s given me time to really find my voice as a songwriter, experience life on the road and all the pain and joy that has come my way in more ways than one.”
