    One More Day with H. Jack Williams

    One More Day with H. Jack Williams

    Singer songwriter H. Jack Williams talks about starting from humble beginnings, chasing his dream, and working with Academy Award winner Kevin Costner.
    Guest Biography
    You’d be hard-pressed to find a life, a career, or a body of work quite like that of singer/songwriter/performer/composer H. Jack Williams.
    Jack himself credits equal parts luck, talent, and tenacity. “My whole life, I’ve gone out and gotten stuff done,” he says. “I think I have unique emotional connections within me, and I’ve always found a way to make that connection musically.” But for one of Nashville’s hardest-working songwriters and most in-demand co-writers – and now with flourishing work in film and television – it’s been a one-of-a-kind 40+ year ride with some of the biggest names in Folk, Rock, and Country. And in many ways, he’s just getting started.

    In this episode, you'll learn:
    Going straight to the person you want to work with… that often means going around gatekeepers. The emotional rollercoaster of being a songwriter or creative.
