Country Music Legend: Hank Williams Sr.

Sept 17, 1923 - Jan 1, 1953
Often considered the King of Country Music, Hiram King "Hank" Williams is probably the most influential country music singer of all time. His songs are still played today and are covered by hundreds of artists. He truly lived his songs of drinking, cheating, and being heartbroken - which eventually led to his death at only 30 years old.

My wife says Hey Good Lookin is the maybe the greatest song ever written. It completely captures the essence of human male/female relations.

My Grandmaw as well. They were dirt poor growing up, and she tells me they wore the needle through a couple Hank Sr. records.

I have a few old Hank records from my other Grandpaw that I still listen to from time to time.

He had thousands of songs and was only 30 when he died (and was drunk and reckless for several of those years). Truly a great artist.

I Can't Help it if I'm Still in Love With You is an amazing song. One of my favorites ever.

So many great songs. And you're right, they are still being covered today. No doubt, one of the greatest song writers of all time.

Awesome. Teach him how to rip songs from YouTube and put on a cd.

he's got his entire catalog on his computer, but he doesn't know how to get to it, but he does know how to watch the last scene of on the wings of eagles and everything related to hank on youtube.

Who might that be?

Also I don't remember what topic but you mentioned spirits yesterday. Do they bring in good bands?
