After he married, Williams left the music business and took jobs in the construction industry. In 1974, he was severely burned in an electrical fire at a glass plant. His burns were so extensive that he underwent more than 200 reconstructive surgeries. Even so, his face was permanently scarred.
Because many of his operations took place at Vanderbilt University Hospital in Nashville, it turned his mind again to music. After taking songwriting classes, he began pitching songs and in 1989 found a job as staff writer at Tree International music publishing.
His other No. 1 singles were Reba McEntire’s “The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter” and Randy Travis’ comeback hit, “Three Wooden Crosses.”
Also among Williams’ Top 5 successes were Kenny Chesney’s “Fall In Love,” Doug Stone’s “Warning Labels,” Clay Walker’s “Who Needs You Baby” and Brooks & Dunn’s “Honky Tonk Truth.”
Kim Williams died Thursday, February 11, 2016 in Florida at the age of 68.
