Nathan Williams Interview

I met Nathan at his neat, huge house in Lafayette where he also keeps his recording studio. Nathan was walking in in his working clothes carrying a sack of okra and asked me to please wait while he got ready for the interview. His wife got to work cutting and cooking the okra and Nathan and I went out to his gorgeous immaculate studio full of memorabilia from his highly successful musical career. During the interview Nathan played music and said prayers. He is a very gentle spiritual person and a great songwriter.
