It was announced in May that Keith, 52, would curate the program’s three-night run to celebrate the life and music of Don Williams, who died at 78 on September 8, 2017.
He amassed 17 number one country hits throughout his nearly 50-year career and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2010.
This year marks the 45th anniversary of his first number one hit, I Wouldn’t Want To Live If You Didn’t Love Me.
Keith’s program is built around an intriguing centerpiece: Don Williams’ original vocals and original band.
The band members will perform the songs as they always did, but with live audio recordings and video of their former bandleader.

From the horse’s mouth: The performances drew from Williams’ long career and featured his recorded vocals from live performances, along with his original backing band playing
The country icon, keto preworkout nicknamed the Gentle Giant because of his deep voice and 6ft1in height, was one of the first country stars to perform across the globe, and many of the live vocals used during the performance were recorded abroad throughout his career.
‘Don Williams and his music are strong threads in the tapestry of my life,’ Keith said in a statement when the concerts were announced.
‘I jumped at the chance to play even a small role in this incredible concert experience.
There is no better way to celebrate him and his legacy than reliving those musical moments, and I’m honored to be part of continuing to share his story and music.’
Saturday’s concert featured a special guest appearance from singer Sara Evans, and audiences at the previous two shows were treated to guest spots from Trace Adkins, Tracy Lawrence and Victoria Shawn.
The shows were originally advertised as having an exclusive video introduction recorded by Keith, but attendees of Saturday’s show were lucky enough to see the man in the flesh.
