Don Williams passed away at the age of 78 on Friday and the music community was quick to react online, sending their condolences to his family and honoring the country star with remembrances. 

See reactions from Charlie Daniels, Jake Owen, Shooter Jennings and more below. 

"In giving voice to songs like "Good Ole Boys Like Me," "Lord, I Hope This Day Is Good," and "Amanda," Don Williams offered calm, beauty, and a sense of wistful peace that is in short supply these days. His music will forever be a balm in troublesome times. Everyone who makes country music with grace, intelligence, and ageless intent will do so while standing on the shoulders of this gentle giant." - Kyle Young, Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum CEO
