Most country artists talk about their long journey to Nashville, but Holly Williams was born and raised in country music's capital. Most country artists speak of some music-loving elder who almost made it, but Holly Williams comes from country royalty. Hank Williams was her grandfather, Hank Jr. her dad, and Hank III her half-brother. Despite all this -- and a couple songs she wrote at the age of eight -- when growing up Holly wasn't interested in music, and dreamed of a career in modeling. Hank Jr. and Holly's mother had separated when Holly was young, but in her teen years her father was taking his daughter to more of his shows. Perhaps that's why, at the age of 17, Holly finally tried playing one of the guitars in the house. Within a week she was writing introspective, somewhat dark, songs.
