Holy cow, never heard of this guy. Hank's grandson. Kind of refreshing to hear outlaw country again.

He hangs out in a Punk band. Every now and then he cuts a country album to make some money. The thing is, he’s good at country. He just doesn’t like it. Best album so far is Locesick, Broke, and Driftin’.

Listen to his version of Johnny Paycheck’s song
and tell me he doesn’t sound exactly like his grandfather.

He looks - and sounds - more like HW than HWJr does.

Just finished listening to a 3-part Hank III interview on YouTube called Trashville. Pretty interesting. Apparently, he’s come around on country music. Now likes it.

Oh, Lovesick, the entire album, is on YouTube. Listening to it now, thanks. Can’t believe I never heard of this guy. Boy, when you turn your back on the Nashville bigwigs, you can kiss your career goodbye.

Thanks. Surprised how good he is, though I shouldn’t be, given his pedigree. Sounds like he’s on the outs with his pop, too... refers to him as being dead.

I’ve seen a couple of interviews with him where he said that Waylon Jennings was more of a father to him than his own father.

Has always seemed more like Hank I to me than Hank Jr ever did. Hank I was more about authenticity and honest, raw emotion than “Nashville”, he would probably have gotten along better with Bon Scott or Johnny Ramone than with the corporate ass-clowns who wrecked country music after his death.

David lee Roth wrote ‘ been to the edge- there I stood and looked down”, Hank *DID ^go to the edge, and came back to write about it. You won’t find professional musician of any genre, from reggae to bebop to thrash who will deny that.

Yup.

Hank Sr. was the better poet of the three, - - - so far.

He and Hank Jr supposedly have a somewhat rocky relationship, although I have heard Hank Jr say he hopes Hank III makes it big.

“Yup.

Hillbilly Shakespeare.

Hank Williams was a great all time great singer and song writer. Amazing talent.

III is ok, he’s improved a lot with age. But he is not even close to his grandfather, nor is Hank Jr.

Very very few are Hank Wiiliams’ peers in music. He is that head and shoulders above most others.

Best song on the album IMO is Cecil Brown.

As for turning your back on Nashville, guys like Willie Nelson and Dwight Yoakam did it and had a lot of success. Nashville is a sewer as far as Country music goes. Nothing good comes out of there.

Check out Hank’s grand daughter, Holly. She’s Hank III’s half sister.

There are only two kinds of music: Country and Western.

Country and Western Music are the Folk Songs of America, - - - Red, White and Blue.

Few have matched words and song better than Hank Williams, Senior, IMHO, of course.

That gift was passed on to Hank Williams, Junior and now to Hank Williams, the third.

We are all better for them sharing their gifts with us, each with their own style.

Love that! What is it with country radio nowadays? Why won’t they play this stuff? If people like it, they should play it. Instead, if you want to listen, you have to put up with a huge crop of mediocrities, many of whom are almost indistinguishable to my ear. Can’t stand listening to them and hardly ever turn on the radio anymore.

Almost finished listening to it. Really like it. Agree about Cecil Brown. A close second for me is 5 Shots of Whiskey followed by Walkin’ with Sorrow.

One of the comments on YouTube was that you know when you’ve found a great musical artist when you have a hard time identifying your favorite song. Just about sums it up for me with regard to Hank III.

My brother-in-law says there are only two kinds of music he doesn’t like: Country and Western. Poor man, no wonder he’s so mixed up.

Can't argue much with the points you make about him and this one song of his. But check out this playlist for a little broader perspective on his music. Also, there is a cool 3-part interview with him on YouTube called "Trashville." It'll take about 30 minutes to get through all three parts. He's a sketchy dude, no doubt about it. But he seems to be coming around.

Truer words have never been spoken. She’s no longer with us and he’s been on a downward spiral ever since.

Check out this guy. He’s got some pretty good stuff but tends to drift away from country. I really like this song though.
