From The Desk Of Spirit Family Reunion: Big Kitty

Carson: Clark “Big Kitty” Williams is a maverick songwriter, performer, producer, outlaw, independent businessman, all-around good citizen and just a guy. From a land of lush, rolling pastures, blue-mountain silhouettes on the horizon and a suburbia filled with mysteries called Maryville, Tenn. For the last decade or so, he has lived in Chattanooga. He knows what losing means. He is a family man. A husband-and-father artist.
