Athens, Georgia singer and country rock maven, Colt Ford, has made a name for himself as one of country rock's most tireless artists. Touring non-stop all year long, Ford does whatever it takes to bring his carefree, fun-loving country lifestyle to a small town near you. Part of Ford's success in staying fresh with American country rock's stiff competition is his willingness to incorporate styles like hip-hop into his music, creating a more dynamic country music experience than many of his peers are willing to afford.
The quaint, touristy town of Williams comes alive during the holidays with festive activities and shops.

Friendly light, decorations and gingerbread contests are orchestrated for local merchants adding a bit of fun rivalry. Start or complete your holiday shopping with purchases from beautifully restored homes-turned-businesses all along the main street. Visit the bedecked train station and adjoining museum, for historical accounts of Williams. Events take place from just after Thanksgiving through January every year.
