Zane Williams, ‘Hello World’ Lyric Video [Exclusive Premiere]
Texas country troubadour Zane Williams is premiering the lyric video for his song “Hello World” exclusively for readers of The Boot. Press play above to watch.
Based in Dallas, Texas, Williams has long been a country music traditionalist, and his dedication to that classic sound is evident on “Hello World." Williams describes the song as "a song about the thankfulness of being alive and the enjoyment of the beauty in nature.”
“I’ve always been in love with the outdoors, attracted to a simpler way of life with a deeper connection to nature and our surroundings,” Williams tells The Boot. "My parents and brother are not that way ... [but] I married into a family that loves the outdoors ... It’s a perfect fit!"
“Hello World” was inspired by Williams’ childhood, when he’d wander through the hills of West Virginia and fish for bluegill in Kentucky with his grandfather. These days, he's a father himself -- to a 7-year-old boy and a 4-year-old girl -- and road life is making it difficult to enjoy time in nature as much as Williams would like.
"Finding time to be outdoors is harder than ever, and yet I need it more than ever -- a chance to unwind, a chance to slow down, a chance to forget about all the craziness of this life I’ve constructed and just sit still and listen to nature," he says. "I hope this song encapsulates that feeling for others like it does for me.”
