Louise Osborne Williams is the sister of Bobby and Sonny Osborne. She and Sonny appeared at WPFB in Middletown while Bob was in Korea. The two records they did on Kitty were issued under her name, one as Lou Osborne and the Osborne Family, and the other as Lou and Sonny Osborne and the Stoney Mountain Boys. Louise wrote all four of the songs and sang on the records. One of the songs was “New Freedom Bell,” which was later recorded and popularized by the Country Gentlemen. Louise authored other songs, including “You’ll Never Be the Same” and “Blue Eyed Darling,” released by Jimmy Martin and Bob Osborne in 1951. Her son Dana Williams plays bass and sings with Diamond Rio, a leading country band.
