Hank Williams Jr.

I'm not sure how popular it'll be, but I am uping my three albums of Hank Williams Jr. the three volumes of greatest hits. Okay, so Hank Williams Jr. is a marvelous country singer and guitarist, who started out singing covers of his father's songs long after he'd died. Bocephus (as his father used to call him) soon found a different way of thinking, he became one of the first in a genre of "outlaw country", which was country singers that sang about the blues, but also sang about drinking, smoking, and womenfolk. None of this dead dog shit, that the genre is stereotyped for. You might recognize the name Hank Williams, as Hank Williams III is a prominent punk and metal drummer, drumming for crust punk act Arson Anthem. Hank Williams Jr. became known for his image of dark sun glasses, a full beard, and a hat, he wore this look to cover up scars all over his face due to a rock climbing accident, in which his brain was exposed to air for over 30 seconds, and his face had to be completely reconstructed. He survived and continued on doing what he was great at.

I ask you, please don't just write this off as shit because it's country, it's really good. And I know those of you that like the southern sound will enjoy this, if you like Lynrd Skynrd, Charlie Daniels, or bands like them, you'll like Hank.
