Country artist Sam Williams – the son of Hank Williams Jr, who himself is the son of western legend Hank Williams – has revealed to fans that he has been placed under a conservatorship against his will, declaring that he wants the arrangement brought to an end.

The admission came in a video that Williams shared to his YouTube page last week (the clip was since deleted, but has been re-uploaded by TMZ). It shows the singer holding up handwritten signs to explain his situation, telling viewers that he was placed in the conservatorship by his father, half-sister Holly Williams and an unnamed lawyer, in August of 2020 – 55 days after his sister, Katie Williams, died at 27 in a car accident.

The video ends with Williams holding up a sign that plainly reads: “I want out.”

Williams further expounded on the case in the video’s caption, writing: “I’ve been quiet a long time now. I want out of this, and I don’t mind people knowing. They took my grief process, my spirit, my money, my car, my home, and everything possible in order to ‘protect me.’ Well, I need protection from them. ”

Noting that he’d been placed under a conservatorship once before (per American Songwriter), Williams added: “I have worked my broken heart to quit since my dear Katie left for home. I do not deserve this. This is a scary step but I don’t see what else to do here. I am ashamed of my family and embarrassed. I am beyond done. I have my spirit back. Get. Me. Out. Please. ”

TMZ claims to have verified the existence of Williams’ current conservatorship, noting that his father did indeed petition for an emergency conservatorship in August 2020.

Exactly a year later, Williams released his debut album, ‘Glasshouse Children’. The record features guest spots from Dolly Parton and Keith Urbanand was followed up in November with a standalone single titled ‘Snow Angels’.

Williams’ plead to end his conservatorship comes in the wake of Britney Spears‘success in fighting to end her own. The pop star was placed under a conservatorship in 2008, and spent years fighting for her freedom before being liberated from the arrangement last November.
