Singer Hilary Williams On Her ‘Lucky Scars,’ Accident That Nearly Killed Her & Family Legacy
I grew up in Nashville, TN. My parents, Hank Williams, Jr. and Becky White, divorced when I was 8 years old. I grew up with my younger sister, Holly, and my mom raised us. When we’d go over to my dad’s house, he wouldn’t have musicians around, but he would break out the guitar or the banjo and play. I didn’t know my grandmother,
Audrey Mae Sheppard Williams, because she passed four years before I was born, but I heard she had these epic parties in the ‘50s, ‘60s, and ‘70s that Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino, and all these amazing artists would come. It’s how my dad learned to play the piano and guitar. He would later show me some great stuff on the guitar.
