An essential collector's item and spectacular gift book: A celebration of Hank Williams, godfather of country music, filled with never-before-seen letters, photographs--and the lyrics to nearly 30 lost songs. He was twenty-nine years old and had recorded just eighty sessions when he died on New Year's Day 1953. Yet those sons--"Hey Good Lookin'," "Your Cheatin' Heart," "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry"--made Hank Williams the most influential country musician ever. Arranged chronologically and enhanced by testimonials from Hank's family, friends, and the musicians he inspired, Hank Williams is a revelation.
