In honor of his legendary career, Williams' longtime producer and friend Garth Fundis has produced a tribute album, Gentle Giants: The Songs of Don Williams, featuring an all-star lineup of artists. "It has been my privilege to work frequently with Don through the years, and I'm proud to honor him with this new project, " said Fundis. "All of the artists on the album have been huge Don Williams fans for years. It makes the entire project very personal and very meaningful."
