Andrew Joseph “Andy” Williams, age 49 of Franklin, TN passed away July 9, 2021 from injuries sustained in an accident. Andy was the epitome of fun, faithful, kind, loving, dedicated, and so much more. He absolutely adored his wife, sons, and sister.

Andy was the drummer for Casting Crowns from 2003 to 2009. In 2008, he and his wife Kelly put a band together named Soul Sister Sally, where he also played the drums. He and Kelly spent a year as youth leaders at Glad Tidings Church in Jonesboro, GA before making their way to Franklin, TN.

The KungFu Kickdrum gained a large student base with Andy’s unique style of teaching and elaborate and fun recitals. He poured much more than drum lessons into each and every student and loved them all dearly.
