Today's Hit Country in Asheville
 
 

Roger McCoy

 

I just read that if he were still alive and hadn't passed when he was 29 years old during a car ride between December 31 and January 1st in 1952-1953, Hank Williams Sr. would have been 90 years old today.  For many of us Hank's music has long been taken off our record players and has never made it to our ipods....but you can still hear his influences today.

At only 29, Hank wrote over 130 country songs, helped give life to Hank Williams Junior and influenced artists like George Strait, Garth Brooks, Brooks & Dunn, Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson and multiple others. So happy birthday to the late and great Hank Williams Sr.
