Description

The remarkable life story of the legendary singer, from impoverished Iowa farm boy to superstardom. Andy Williams is one of the greatest singers of all time. During a remarkable career spanning eight decades, he has sold over 100 million albums, hosted a hugely successful TV show and worked with a roll-call of showbusiness legends. Now for the first time Andy tells the whole remarkable story. An Iowa farm boy who grew up during the Great Depression, Andy began performing at the age of seven as one quarter of the Williams Brothers. After going solo, he endured his wilderness years, barely scraping a living in 'rust-belt' supper clubs - to re-emerge as one of the greatest television and recording stars of his era. THE ANDY WILLIAMS SHOW topped TV ratings around the world, and a string of smash hits, including his signature tune 'Moon River', went on to earn him eighteen gold and three platinum discs. Still singing, still holding audiences in the palm of his hand, Andy Williams looks back on an extraordinary showbusiness life. Revelatory, honest, funny and touching, MOON RIVER AND ME is the inspiring autobiography of an icon.show more

With his wife Debbie, he divides his time between homes in Branson and La Quinta, California.show more
