Holly Williams engaged
Holly Williams, the striking and statuesque blonde with the powerful pipes and a wonderful way with words who released Here With Me (Mercury Nashville) on June 16, is engaged to Nashville drummer Chris Coleman, 29.
Coleman proposed to Williams last week in Leipers Fork, Tennessee, her record company reported. Coleman gave her an antique three-banded diamond engagement ring and he and Williams went on a picnic, then on a hike to look for Civil War relics.
“I dug up a beautiful wooden box with my favorite love quote on it,” the 28-year-old Williams told People.com, “and the engagement date carved in roman numerals. He wood-burned the letters onto the box! He got on one knee and I opened the box, underneath the flowers and basil were the rings.”
No wedding date has been set.
Williams, the daughter of Hank Williams Jr. and the granddaughter of Hank Williams Sr., is currently on tour. In addition to opening select dates for Sugarland, she will be joining Madeleine Peyroux in August.
