Andy Williams is one of the greatest singers of all time. During a remarkable career spaning eight decades, he has sold over 100 million albums, hosted a hugely successful TV show and worked with a roll-call of showbusiness legends that included Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra, Lauren Bacall, Elvis Presley and John Lennon. Now for the first time Andy tells the whole remarkable story. An Iowa farm boy who grew up during the Great Depression, Andy began performing at the age of seven as one quarter of the Williams Brothers. After going solo, he endured his wilderness years, barely scraping a living in 'rust-belt' supper clubs - to re-emerge as one of the greatest television and recording stars of his era. The Andy Williams Show topped TV ratings around the world, and a string of smash hits, including his signature tune Moon River, went on to earn him eighteen gold and three platinum discs. Still singing, still holding audiences in the palm of his hand, Andy Williams looks back on an extraordinary showbusiness life. Revelatory, honest, funny and touching, Moon River is the inspiring autobiography of an icon.

Andy Williams was born in rural Iowa in 1927. His solo career began in 1952, since when he has headlined for twenty years at Caesar's Palace, Las Vegas, hosted one of the most successful and long-running TV shows ever, and toured sell-out concert venues around the world. In the 1990s, Andy designed and built his own state-of-the-art venue, The Moon River Theatre in Branson, Missouri, where he still performs. With his wife Debbie, he divides his time between homes in Branson and La Quinta, California.
