When: Thu., Jan. 16 2014
Price: $50-$60

country, 7:30 p.m.

At 74, country music legend Don Williams has accomplished all that he needed to, but that hasn’t stopped him from writing and playing. The “Gentle Giant” — recognized for the comfortably rambling lilt and robust croon he brought to classics like “I Wouldn’t Want to Live if You Didn’t Love Me” and “I Believe in You” — has already been inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. In 2006, his “Farewell Tour of the World” made it seem like he might take a final bow, but he returned from retirement in 2010 and hit the road. And then in 2012, he released So It Goes, his first studio album in eight years. Despite his advanced years, this towering legend of country music keeps on going. And why not. So It Goes is a satisfying record. If anything, it showcases Williams’ voice, which has only gotten better with age. These days it rumbles a little deeper, adding an appealing roughness that never takes away from the reliably pillowy comforts of his pipes. —Jordan Lawrence THURSDAY
