(2009/COW ISLAND) 8 tracks (26:39), a nice hommage to one of the most important Country artists ever, feat. three self-penned tribute tracks and five tremendous covers and interpretations of the music Hank Williams brought us decades ago and in the nowadays still brings to our turntables and players!! Highly recommended!!
There's good reasons why folks pay tribute to Hank Williams. The hundred or so recordings he made in the seven years preceding his death are unequalled in country music. They preserve the essence of Hank the man: not the staggering drunk anti-hero, but the great genius, who wrote constantly, sang more soulfully with every song, and created timeless works of art until his very death.
This tribute includes our versions of songs made famous by Hank, as well as some new songs inspired by his music, life, and hometown. We hope you enjoy it, and encourage everyone you know to learn about Hank's music. Hank's songs are good for us. They express joy and sorrow in ways we all understand, and make us happy. - Arty Hill
