Former Christian band drummer Andy Williams, 49, dies following motorcycle accident

The world of contemporary Christian music received tragic news week, as The Washington Times reported that a former drummer for Casting Crowns, a popular Christian band, has died.  

Andy Williams, 49, passed away at Nashville’s Vanderbilt Hospital on Friday after being hospitalized due to being struck by a car while riding his motorcycle in an accident that happened two weeks earlier.

“He fought a great fight”

Information about the musician’s passing was made public by his widow via a post to Grace Chapel Fairview’s Facebook page.

Kelly Williams wrote, “Early this morning, around 1:00 a.m., Andy Williams went to be with Jesus. He fought a great fight, but the injuries that he suffered took a toll on his physical body.”

“We celebrate that Andy is in the arms of his Savior and we are grateful for the memories and laughter that Andy brought to all who knew him,” she went on to add.

Williams loved Jesus and family

Nashville radio personality Karla Henry offered kind words of remembrance for Williams, characterizing him as “a Teddy bear of a man who loved Jesus and his family so deeply and well.”

She also recalled to the Times how the late drummer had provided instruction to her son, saying, “My son could have the hardest day, but leave his music lesson smiling and laughing!”

Henry explained that a GoFundMe account had been established in Williams’ honor, and it contained a statement from his friends and family.

“You prayed along with us that Andy would be healed,” it said. “You prayed along with us that Andy would wake up. You prayed along with us that God would perform a miracle.”

“While we mourn that Andy isn’t here with us, and that we didn’t get to witness the miracle we longed for here on earth, all of our prayers were answered. He is healed, he is awake and we believe that he is more alive today than he has ever been.”

His legacy with Casting Crowns

The Times noted that Williams was a member of Casting Crowns from 2001 through 2009, during which time the group released three platinum-selling studio records, along with three live recordings.

Among the band’s most popular singles were “Who Am I,” released in 2004, and 2007’s “East to West.”
