Dana Williams was born in Dayton Ohio but grew up mostly in Nashville,
Dana joined Diamond Rio in 1989 and was the sixth and final member. Jimmy Olander knew Dana and called him to audition for the Tennessee River Boys. At the time Dana was hired, the guys only had one gig on their schedule, a television appearance on TNN’s “Nashville Now.” That night, the original members of Diamond Rio played together for the first time as the Tennessee River Boys.
Dana is married and has an eleven year old son.
“This band is something I never thought would come my way, and when it did, it was the answer to so many questions in my life. People ask us what kind of music we listen to and what did we listen to when we were starting out. Well, COMPLETELY is the answer to those questions. There’s a piece of all of us in this record, a piece of everything we like."
