Acclaimed Kentucky country singer-songwriter Grayson Jenkins has announced a September 23 release for two new singles, his first since releasing the full-length Turning Tides in 2021. Both tracks serve as a tribute to the late Don Williams, with original “Little Things” (produced by Steve Dawson) featuring fellow Kentuckian Abby Hamilton on harmony vocals. “Tulsa Time” is a cover of Williams’ country-funk classic, written by Danny Flowers.

Jenkins, on “Little Things”: This song started in my kitchen on a Sunday morning while my girlfriend and I were cleaning tomatoes from the garden. A friend of mine had posted that day about Don Williams being the perfect Sunday record to spin, which I wholeheartedly agree with, and that was on my mind while we got to work canning. I wrote the chorus that day in July 2021. In the original demo, you can hear rustling in the background from my girlfriend working away while I played. That moment in time is pretty special to me.

As a product of the 70’s and 80’s, my mom was a big fan of Don Williams and passed his music down to me. He’s been a favorite of mine since, and even more so the older I get. When I started working to finish the song, my mother was on my mind. We lost her in 2015 and that’s had a profound impact on my perspective. She had a way of appreciating and loving the small details in life – pretty flowers, old houses, good gardens, and more. She’d always say, “we’re not rich, but we’re rich with love” and that’s stuck with me as the years go on. When I find myself appreciating the little things, I feel a lot more at peace and able to give more love to the people in my life. (more…)
