He just was.
Thank you, ma'am.
He's been reincarnated in his grandson:
Of course he's a badass, he was born in Alabama.
Lol Hank Williams is so much cooler than his grandson it's not even a good comparison.
Hank Williams is a bad ass, but his offspring suck.
They have country music in Alaska?
I've heard one of Hank III's songs on spinner.com. Something "Atlantic City" is the song title. It was unique to say the least. Mostly honky tonk crooning but I need to hear more. Apparently his music is a cross between thrash-like rock and country, with a bit of punk meshed in.
hank williams and johnny rebel are tied for the most badass music men ever
too bad hank jr. appeared on a kid rock video and has really really really bad uncountry music
Saw him at a bar, his first set was some old stuff and anti-Nashville country. His second set was thrash metal.
If you don't like Hank Jr (in his salad days, not lately) or Hank iii, then you don't like country music.
The think I like about Hank III is the fact that he could have taken the easy route (the same one Hank, Jr's been taking for a while) and just cashed in playing pap.
He's hardcore for real. The best country hard rocker since Jason Ringenberg's 80's stuff.
Yes, ol' dirty Glasper, they have country music in Alaska. A girl needs something to listen to out on the lonesome...tundra. And I live near the South now.
Besides, music like Hank Williams or Johnny Cash, or Jimmie Rodgers (what can I say, I'm a sucker for the yodeling ) transcends just about everything.
I just wish my best friend in Texas liked country music, so she'd have an idea of good places to go for live music when i come to visit for Thanksgiving. Born and raised in the state, you'd think it would be against the law for her not to like country. The heathen!!!
Tell me what city you'll be in and I'll recommend some places,
Thanks! I'll definitely be in Dallas, but I'm hoping to make it to Austin as well and maybe (depending on how much time I can get off and all that good stuff) San Antonio. I've only ever been to Dallas before.
Longhorn Lounge on the 4000 block of North Burnet street. Hard-ass Honky Tonk and Dale Watson plays there in front of about 40 people every Tuesday night.
The Continental Club books great acts, but they also have rock and jazz, so check the schedule beforehand.
Fort Worth (30 minutes from Dallas):
Billy Bob's - billed as the largest Honky Tonk in the world but it's become touristy. Still, they book some great acts.
White Elephant - Honky Tonk with great atmosphere and very local-specific music.
Taco Land is by far the best venue, they also book rock so check beforehand. I haven't been there in over 5 years, though.
Dallas: Dallas wouldn't know country if it were hog-tied and force-fed.
Thanks so much, GringoTex! I'm taking notes....
'Rambling Man' is the best song I've ever heard. And 'Long Gone Lonesome Blues' and 'I'm so Lonesome I Could Cry' aren't far behind.
For some reason this made me think of:
"Help me Obiwan, your my only hope..."
It must be the rhythm of the sentence and the ending "o" sound.
I beg to differ, Hank jr. and Hank 3 is bastardized country at best, ask any REAL country music lover, and I mean Nashville, Kentucky, Southern Illinois, bluegrass style country music stars and the would tell you that they are sinful disgraces to the art.
What's wrong with bastardized country music? Country music is ALL ABOUT being a bastard. What's your idea of a REAL country music lover? A person who attends public radio-sponsored folk festivals with a dog-eared autographed photo of the Foggy Mountain Boys?
No, REAL country music is whatever you listen to in your truck on a fenceline road in West Texas, sipping on a beer to take away the pain of being kicked by a Brahma. Purity and sin is for college students and yuppies.
