HOLLY WILLIAMS carries her lineage lightly. Which can't be easy when your grandfather was Hank Williams Sr, the beating heart and tortured soul of country music, and your father, Hank Williams Jr, once the undisputed commercial heavyweight of the genre. But the 31-year-old singer-songwriter resolutely treads her own singular path, neither eschewing nor exploiting the family name, but just accepting it. The fuss is usually made by other people. Other people like me. Oh, and Bob Dylan.
