It felt like a scene from the ABC series "Nashville. " Before a modestly sized crowd Saturday afternoon at the Stagecoach Country Music Festival, Holly Williams performed an assured set of no-frills country tunes that might've won the approval of her late grandfather, the pioneering roots-music giant Hank Williams.
