|ANDY WILLIAMS - BIOGRAPHY||
Andy Williams parlayed his relaxed vocal delivery into massive pop success and TV stardom during the '60s. After starting out singing with his brothers over various midwestern radio stations as a youth, the Wall Lake, IA, native went solo in 1952 and became a regular on Steve Allen's Tonight Show through 1955. He signed with Archie Bleyer's Cadence Records the next year and hit with "Canadian Sunset," topping the charts with a cover of Charlie Gracie's rock-tinged "Butterfly" in 1957. "Are You Sincere" (1958) and "Lonely Street" (1959) preceded a move to Columbia in 1961 and the huge seller "Can't Get Used to Losing You" in 1963. Williams has long been one of America's top middle-of-the-road entertainers, hosting his own TV variety series throughout the '60s, and he remains a highly popular attraction.
