In an earlier post on her page, Williams revealed that she has been spending time songwriting with Matt Morris, the son of Gary Morris, who was a co-writer on Kelly Clarkson‘s ‘Miss Independent.’

Williams has not recorded a solo LP since 2005’s ‘Genesis,’ when she was primarily a Christian pop singer.

The future of the Civil Wars, Williams’ duo with John Paul White, has been up in the air since they canceled tour dates unexpectedly in 2012. Despite the release of a new EP on April 13, reports have swirled that the duo are not speaking.
