Donald Ray Williams (May 27, 1939 – September 8, 2017) was an American country singer, songwriter, and 2010 inductee to the Country Music Hall of Fame. He began his solo career in 1971, singing popular ballads and amassing 17 number one country hits.

His straightforward yet smooth bass-baritone voice, soft tones, and imposing build earned him the nickname "The Gentle Giant". In 1975, Williams starred in a movie with Burt Reynolds and Jerry Reed called W.W. and the Dixie Dancekings. Williams has had a strong influence over a variety of recording artists of different genres.

In 2010, the Country Music Association inducted Don Williams into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Don Williams was among hundreds of artists whose material was destroyed in the 2008 Universal Studios fire.

His first single with ABC/Dot, "I Wouldn't Want to Live If You Didn't Love Me," became a number one hit, and was the first of a string of top ten hits he had between 1974 and 1991. Only four of his 46 singles did not make it to the Top Ten.

"I Believe in You", written by Roger Cook and Sam Hogin, was Williams' eleventh number one on the country chart. It was his only Top 40 chart entry in the U.S., where it peaked at number 24. It was also hit in Australia, New Zealand and Europe.

Williams had some minor roles in Burt Reynolds movies. In 1975, Williams appeared as a member of the Dixie Dancekings band in the movie, W.W. and the Dixie Dancekings, alongside Reynolds. Williams also appeared as himself in the Universal Pictures movie, Smokey and the Bandit II, in which he also played a number of songs.

Williams married Joy Janene Bucher in April 1960. They had two children.

On September 8, 2017, Don Williams died in Mobile, Alabama, due to emphysema.
