Hank Williams Jr.'s Daughter Holly Seeks Prayers for Family After Tragic Death of Sister

Holly Williams is asking followers to pray for her family in the wake of her sister’s sudden passing. Hours after Katherine Williams-Dunning lost her life at the age of 27 in a car accident in Tennessee, the daughter of country singer Hank Williams Jr. broke her silence over the devastating tragedy.

Sharing the last family picture they took together, the 37-year-old singer began by stating, “I have no words.” She went on to recall, “On Friday morning I talked the family into taking this picture and had no idea it would be our last together with my precious little sister Katie. We all went to my great aunts funeral on Thursday whom we all loved dearly, and now are faced with another one.”

Holly continued to share what her family needs during this difficult time. “ALL we need is prayers. My daddy. My little brother,” she wrote. “Katie’s husband (he is awake and responding don’t know injury extent yet). My niece and nephew. Her Mama. The Dunning family. All of us. So. Many. Prayers. Jesus is close. Thank you all.”

Her tribute post was quicky flooded with messages of condolences. Among those were The Highwomen member Natalie Hemby who wrote, “I love you and your family so much, Holly. I’m so so sorry. I’m glad you got yo see her this weekend,” and Little Big Town founder Karen Fairchild who stated, “So very sorry Holly. We’re praying for you and we love y’all.”
