Biography

The story of Hilary Williams’ life is extraordinary in every sense of the word. Born into one of music’s most revered families as the daughter of Hank Williams, Jr. and the granddaughter of Hank Williams, Hilary inherited the family’s songwriting and singing gifts in spades. In fact, her father says, “She sings like a queen, like a star.” But that legacy is only part of what has come to define Hilary’s life and ultimately give her a story that is both inspiring and uniquely her own. This is the story she tells in her new memoir, Sign of Life.

While driving to her grandfather’s funeral with sister Holly on March 15, 2006, Hilary lost control of her SUV on Mississippi’s historic Highway 61. The crash left both sisters in critical condition, but Hilary’s injuries would prove to be catastrophic. Hilary describes her injuries as she hovered between life and death at the scene: “I had broken too many bones to count. Both of my legs, my ankle, my back, collarbone, tailbone, pelvis, right femur, and three ribs were all broken. My hips were shattered. I had a ruptured colon and bruised lungs.”

Many artists will say that blood, sweat, and tears go into their first album. Few, however, mean it literally. For Hilary Williams, the long-awaited release of her self-titled EP is just that, a culmination of a painful physical comeback
