Happy Birthday, Hank!


This is Hank Williams’ birthday.

He was born in 1923 so this is what would be his 90th.

I love many of his songs.

Like this cover of I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry by A.A. Bondy.

Just wonderful.

I heard him play this live thanks to my friend, Anne. What a treat!

My hat is off to anyone covering this song. I’d be about to sob by the end. Maybe that is the Hank effect?

Here’s Elvis covering it in Hawaii. In the intro he tells the audience that he’s about to sing the saddest song he’s ever heard.


I think that everyone has covered this.

Al Green!
