Editor’s Note:  Coleman Williams IV sat down with Madness To Creation Podcast to discuss “Son of Sin”, revitalizing the Nashville community, mental health and his influences. It’s pretty wild for me to realize that a band like Jesus Lizard and a legendary songwriter in John Prine can provide equal influence for a country artist.  I’ve learned so much from this conversation and how Coleman Williams IV wants to create his own legacy from his historical family name(based on his last name, you can figure out who it is), and how he works extra hard into carving out his own niche in the industry.
