Holly Williams talks about her new album 'The Highway' and what it's like playing festivals compared to small shows.
The country star, who happens to be the granddaughter of the legendary Hank Williams, has been hitting the road over the course of the summer, playing at the likes of Rhode Island's Rhythm & Roots Festival as well as supporting John Hiatt over his July dates. She has been promoting her stunning third album 'The Highway' which, she admitted in an interview, she thinks has done much better than her previous work because 'it feels much more authentically me and I feel like people respond to that better'.
What can we expect from another double weekend at Austin City Limits Festival?
Austin City Limits Music Festival is set to hit Texas for its twelfth year, bringing with it two weekends of fabulous live music and family fun.
The festival organisers first decided to spread the fun out over two weekends last year, in a bid to welcome yet more people into this unique world, and it appears that they haven't gone back on their word as they are set to return to Zilker Park on October 4th - 6th and 11th - 13th. This year sees some impressive headline acts including Depeche Mode, The Cure, Muse and Kings Of Leon - and if that wasn't exciting enough, Atoms For Peace, Lionel Richie, Phoenix and Wilco are also high up on this year's bill! Some of the other acts scattered around are just as jaw-droppingly impressive, not to mention extremely diverse. We have Californian rockers Queens Of The Stone Age, country star Hank Williams Jr.'s daughter Holly Williams, Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar, LA sisters Haim, alt-folk group Thao & The Get Down Stay Down Nottingham singer Jake Bugg and legendary 'Gay Bar' hitmakers Electric Six.
