Kevin Williams

Kevin Williams was a native of Russell Springs, Kentucky.

He began his music career traveling with Wendy Bagwell And The Sunliters.

He is best known for playing guitar with the Gaither Vocal Band and on the Gaither Homecoming tour and videos where he served as the band leader for multiple decades. In addition to performing, Williams provided conversational comedy during Gaither concerts, often interrupting emcee Bill Gaither to get a laugh from the crowd. Williams also recorded solo guitar albums, worked extensively as a session musician and producer, and wrote songs.

In 2014, Williams launched a charitable organization called Kevin's Kids which raises money for needy children in the state of Kentucky.
