Country legend Don Williams will be appearing at Mahnomen’s Shooting Star Casino on Friday, April 11 at 8 p.m.

Doors open at 7 p.m. for this all ages show.

Williams, a Country Music Hall of Fame member, dominated for decades as a country hit maker and earned the name “the Gentle Giant” because of his unique blend of commanding presence and that laid-back, easy style — cutting across national and genre boundaries.

Those personal and musical qualities that stood out strongly across the 1970s, ‘80s and ‘90s, came full circle both in 2012, as Williams delivered the masterful “And So It Goes.”

His latest 10-track studio release, “Reflections,” debuted March 11 on Sugar Hill Records.

Don Williams’ greatest asset has always been his impressive and diverse catalog of songs. The hundreds of memorable tunes in his still-growing repertoire — over 50 of them major hits — whether contemplative ballads, affecting love songs or change-up rhythm numbers, have always been a core Don Williams strength and focus.

Tickets for Williams’ April 11 show at the Shooting Star Casino Event Center  range from $20 to $45, and are available online at, by phone at 800-313-7469, or via the Events tab on the Shooting Star Facebook page.
