Hank Williams Tribute
Shelby & Linda Stephenson

Hank Williams, Sr: Born in Alabama, September 17, 1923; died January 1, 1953. Probably the two most legendary figures in country music are Jimmie Rodgers and Hank Williams, Sr.

Hank Williams is the Dylan Thomas of country music. His music figures in all I write. I was standing under the walnut tree New Year’s day, 1953, when I heard on the radio that he had died. And I marveled that one who sang on the radio could die. His “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” is so nearly a poem–well, maybe it is.
