Andy Williams Tickets
Andy Williams (born December 3, 1927 in Wall Lake,
Iowa), is an iconic American pop singer. Andy Williams'
solo career began in 1952 when he recorded six sides for RCA's
label "X," but none of them were popular hits. His third
single, "Canadian Sunset" (1956) hit the Top Ten, and was soon
followed his only Billboard #1 hit, "Butterfly". More hits
followed, including "The Hawaiian Wedding Song", "Are You
Sincere", "The Village of St. Bernadette" and "Lonely Street".
In terms of chart popularity, his era with Cadence Records was his most successful producing top ten hits "Butterfly" and "I Like Your Kind of Love". Andy Williams' later songs, however, became much bigger hits.

During the 1960s, Andy Williams became one of the most popular vocalists in the country and signed what was to that time the biggest recording contract in history. Andy Williams was primarily an album artist, and at one time he had earned more gold albums than any solo performer except Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley. By 1973 he had earned as many as 17 gold album awards. Among his hit albums from this period were Moon River, Days of Wine and Roses (number one for 16 weeks in mid-1963), The Andy Williams Christmas Album, Dear Heart, The Shadow of Your Smile, Love, Andy, Get Together with Andy Williams and Love Story. In these recordings Andy Williams displays an incredible vocal technique along with an uncanny ability to make each song his very own, often rivaling or surpassing the version by the original artist. These attributes, along with his natural affinity for the music of the 1960s and early 1970s, combined to make him one of the premier easy listening singers of that era.
In the early 1990s, Andy Williams gave up most of his touring schedule in order to open his own theatre in Branson, Missouri, the Andy Williams Moon River Theater. He continues to do 8-12 shows a week from September to December and occasionally makes tours of Europe earlier in the year.
