I’m really getting sick and tired of seeing/hearing about all of this *** “Limb Licker” stuff like this *** NBA player, this *** NFL player, this Hollywood Star comes out, Chicago Judge rules *** can marry, etc. etc. My Father was born in 1897 and I was raised by a gentleman that had Honor, Integrity, and “Family Values” like most men/women born in those years had. Boy have times changed since I was born in 1944 like the TV advertising of condoms, feminine products, sex sells everywhere, strong sexual overtones on TV shows, and all of the sex in movies, singer Miley whatever her last name is ( I’ll take Buck Owens, Hank Williams, “Mr. Guitar Chet Atkins,” Kitty Wells, Tammy Wynette, Roy Acuff, etc. anytime!) I’m sick of all of this continual lack of morals! And by the way if ya don’t like this post then by all means feel free to unfriend me immediately!

Just got an appointment for a paid market research thing, which deductive logic leads me to believe involves a new 'modern country' radio station... will I have to feign interest in Kenny Chesney for two hours, or is jumping up and bellowing "This ain't no *** Hank Williams song!" partway through considered appropriate?

Brassy's Take II. Brassy's Night Club From 1979 to 1987, legends of classic rock graced a former grocery store in Cocoa Beach. Brassy’s Night Club in Cocoa Beach touted one of the top nightlife hotspots for the Space Coast’s youth.

During an interview with the Orlando Sentinel in 1986, Hemenway said the club was spending up to $150,000 a year on the name bands, but made up to $1.5 million a year.

Working on a chapter that seems to be turning into another book. It's about The Stars and the Survivor Benefits They Leave Behind: Gig Young – 11/4/13 – 10/19/78 Apparent murder-suicide – no widow. He did leave behind a teenaged daughter from a previous marriage. Benefits: The daughter is eligible for survivor’s benefits, and former spouse Elaine Williams would have been eligible for child-in-care benefits. Jessica Savitch – 2/1/47 – 10/23/83 A shock. Two brief marriages, no children. No claims can ever be filed on her work record. Hank Williams – 9/17/23 – 1/1/53 Left behind a widow and two children. On 5/26/49, Hank Jr. was born to him and Audrey Sheppard, his wife from 12/14/44 through 5/29/52. He had another child from a relationship with a woman named Bobbie Jett, a daughter, born just five days after he passed (1/6/53). He left behind a widow, Billie Jean, whom he married on 10/18/52 (and because his death was accidental, she would have been eligible for widow's benefits later in lif ...

Toward the end of his life, Hank Williams was so drunk or drugged one night in San Diego that he stumbled off stage after finishing only two songs in the first show of a two-show evening gig. Minnie Pearl and the show promoter's wife drove him around town to try to sober him up enough to do the second show. They tried to get him to sing along with them to revive him. He sang only one verse of "I Saw the Light" before stopping. "Minnie," Williams said, "I don't see no light. There ain't no light."
Well travelled (Leeks west coast acoustic country rock band) playing live in the *** Inn's own Saturday Night Line Up, the finest local music every Saturday until *** freezes over. Well Travelled are a mainly acoustic ensemble who play all things Americana, Mike Gledhill and John Bailey are veterans of the Leek blues, folk and rock scenes since the 1970s. Steve Giddings is an apprentice veteran of more recent times. With guitars, mandolin, lap steel, harmonica and CSNY style harmony vocals, they take you through the country rock catalogue of the 60s and 70s with tributes to Hank Williams, Ry Cooder, Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan along the way. They have even been known to stray into Elvis territory but only if you ply them with drink first! THIS SATURDAY 9PM.

My new reality TV show treatment is written. I secured this song by Hank Williams Jr for the reality TV series and I have all cast members and film crew ready to film. Anyone who wants to do some product placement that has to do with country products please let me know. It would be nice to get a Ford, Chevy or Dodge to get on board with a sponsorship for this reality TV show.
Watching a show on the making of a modern country artist new album. All I can say is Hank Williams would not recognize the genre today.

Has anyone else wonder why Hank Williams Jr. Is playing @ chilifest but the burleson co. Fair don't or can't get a big artist?? Just saying
I'm probably the only person alive who can be pleased with every song on a playlist that includes these artists. Elvis, Tupac, Hank Williams Jr, No Doubt, Metallica, Bob Marley, Pink, Project Pat, Jefferson Airplane, Steppenwolf, Doobie Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Beethoven, Bach, I could go on all *** day. The concept of diversity was not lost on me.
Ran out to get a bite to eat. The two next to me, about my age, must be on a first date. So far they have discussed midlife weight gain, all the operations they have had, and Hank Williams Jr
Don't get me wrong I love heavy metal but I like Hank Williams Jr.and want to see him at the casino. Is that funny
We all have""ONE"" thing in Common. We all want to be ""LOVED"" It is our most Basic and Natural Desire and Need. For Some of us... ...That most Basic need was never met...So Some have tried to Achieve this desire by becoming Famous, Powerful and Rich. They believed that """IF""" this happened. that their desires.. would surely satisfy them. But they never really ""FELT LOVED"" or ""HAPPINESS"". Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, Cory Haims, Heath Ledger, Hank Williams, Anna Nichole Smith, Brittany Murphy, Jeff Conway, River Phoenix, Ike Turner, Sid Vicious, Marilyn Monroe, Freddy Prinze, John Belushi, John Candy, Jimi Hendrix, Billie Holiday, Andy Gibb, Judy Garland, Chris Penn.Or just maybe Regular people.. Our grandparents, Parents, Brothers, Sisters, Friends.. Maybe they tried to achieve success too, in their own way ...They were trying to get ""LOVE"" But instead they Died. The Death Certificate says.. Drug Overdose... I say.A broken heart.
One old guy recalls another old guy.or...Pete Seeger changed my life. Since I was a little kid I have always loved music. In the late 30s I listened with my two older brothers to "big band" music. It was OK...until I was maybe about 10. I discovered Ernest Tubb...Roy Acuff..."Hillbilly Music". Eddie Arnold, Hank Williams...I had found my musical home. Hillbilly songs were all about Mama died or my girlfriend left or getting drunk or maybe about Jesus. I loved it all. In 1949 my sister, who was working full time...making fifteen dollars, or so, a week, bought me a ukulele. It was call an "Islander"...had a drawing of a hula girl on it. It was made out of plastic. To me it was a Stradivarius. Even more amazing, I discovered that, after doodling with it for a while, I could actually figure out how to strum out a tune. I think my first one (from the book that came with it) was "Five Foot Two". The uke wasn't exactly a hillbilly instrument.BUT pretty soon I could play "Tramp on the Street" (a song ...
Hank Williams, Jr. and Merle Haggard collaborate for a remake of Haggard's early '80s hit, 'I Think I'll Just Stay Here and Drink.'
Today we say goodbye to a giant of 20th Century American folk music, a music scholar and more important a tireless advocate for the poor, downtrodden and especially the workers of our land. Pete Seeger was a hero to me as a teenager just discovering the civil rights protest movement. Through folk music, protest songs, union songs and the simple beauty of traditonal Appalachian, Prairie and Frontier songs, rural and urban blues, Zydeco and New Orleans jazz I opened up to the world from this little parochial Central Minnesota town. Pete Seeger was right in the forefront of that discovery, playing, writing, explaining and treasuring the music, forging a path for me to treasure it as well. Pete kept playing and kept playing, knowing that the message in the music was powerful and important and he still had a story to tell. For me he is in the same sentence with other seminal 20th Century pre electric musical marvels, Huddy Ledbetter (Lead Belly), Robert Johnson, Woody Guthrie, Hank Williams, John Hammond who k ...

I'm sorry this is so long. I LOVE country music. I grew up on it. It is my favorite genre of music. The mess that is the Country Music Hall of Fame is a pet peeve of mind. It's cruel to performers to really deserve it and as a woman I am offended at how sexist it has been throughout the years. (There is NO way that Miss Patsy Cline should have been inducted TWELVE YEARS after the first inductees!) This is the very exclusive mostly boy's club list of the only inductees into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Hank Williams, Sr. Jimmie Rodgers Roy Acuff Tex Ritter Ernest Tubb Uncle Dave Macon Eddy Arnold Jim Reeves Red Foley Bob Wills Gene Autry Bill Monroe The Carter Family (1st women inducted as part of a family group 1970) Jimmy Davis Patsy Cline (1st female solo act inducted in 1973=12 years after HoF started.)

I Will Miss You When You Go is from the album "Now, There Was a Song!". It is the ninth album by Johnny Cash, featuring songs by Ernest Tubb, Hank Williams, ...
Ray Price was the last person to have performed with and known Hank Williams.
If you mean the likes of Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, etc. then yes. If you're thinking Billy Ray or Miley Cyrus, nope
Whether its Stevie Ray about his Pride and Joy, Hank Williams about Dixie, or Waka Flocka about his gun sounds, passion creates good music.
I listen to Justin Moore and Luke Bryan but neither one are REAL country. Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, and Waylon Jennings are REAL country!
January 24 in music history, 1962: Brian Epstein became The Beatles' manager with a whopping 25% of the groups gross income. The norm was 10%. 1953: Hank Williams had a prophetic hit with "I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive". He died before it reached No.1.
Imagine if Robert Burns had had a guitar. That's Woody Guthrie, Hank Williams, Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash.
Mt friend Harris Sullivan, who I worked with for many years is now a poet. He recently wrote a poem for the funeral of his friend Morris Brown, who was a devoted jazz fan--thought you might like to read it.-PARADISE I stole the gold at the end of the rainbow. I held a shooting star in my hand. I put music to The Book of Wisdom. I rewrote the history of man. I wrote a song and gave it to Elvis. He sings it each day for me. I walk the line that leads to the prison, where the” man in black” is singing for free. Art Tatum does his magic at the piano, and Sinatra hits notes strong and true. He hands them to Sammy, who gives them to Dean, and Lead Belly colors them blue. St. Augustine and Einstein are showing their stuff. They’re battling to win on the chess board. Hemingway is doing the play-by play, while Mozart writes a tune for the Lord. Billie Holliday and Ella are working a song. Duke Ellington is lending a hand. Ray Charles and Hank Williams compare notes. Glenn Miller is forming a band. Louis Ar . ...
coming up on Johnny's Country Show we have John Parmenter, Billy Dean and Hank Williams so stay tuned for more great country...
Once had to explain to someone that I regularly listen to Hank Williams. Their response, " ... Like, for fun?"
Dear ESPN, Please get rid of Brent Musburger. I would rather listen to Dickie V, covering a Duke/Syracuse game, while clipping his fingernails and listening to Justin Bieber and Kanye West covering a Hank Williams song than listen to Brent Musburger call another sporting event. Thank you.

Not familiar with Jack Kirby: The King of Comics? Maybe you are and just don't know it. Jack Kirby was an innovative artist active in the comics industry from 1936 until his death in 1994. In 1940, Jack Kirby and writer Joe Simon created Captain America for Timely Comics (which later became Atlas and then Marvel) before the duo left to work for National Comics (which later became DC Comics) where they created Boy Commandos, Newsboy Legion, and Manhunter. During World War 2, he served as a scout who would advance into areas and draw reconnaissance maps for the U.S. Army. After the war, he rejoined with partner Joe Simon and created Young Romance - the first ever romance comic (which, in turn, was used by Hank Williams as fodder for song lyrics) before returning to National (DC) where he created Challengers Of The Unknown. He then returned to Marvel, where he and Stan Lee co-created the Marvel Universe: the Fantastic Four (including Dr. Doom, the Watcher, the Inhumans, Galactus, and the Silver Surfer) ...

My music wish list: I wish all these people were singing on the Opry and making records. Hank Williams, Jimmie Rodgers, Ernest Tubb, Al Dexter, Tex Ritter, The Delmore Brothers, The Louvin Brothers, The Wilburn Brothers, The Everly Brothers, T.

One of these days, I'll have to try my hand at crawfish pie and filé gumbo. H/T: Hank Williams, Sr.

Sixty-one years ago today, January 1, 1953: (Hank Williams) Hiram King Williams passed away. Hank was originally buried on January 4, 1953 in the main part of Oakwood Cemetery, but his body was moved to its current location (Oakwood Annex) on January 17, 1953 to a spot that would later be big enough to accommodate the burial of other family members. The move had to be made during the night because there were so many visitors to the grave site.
Country music felt a seismic shift this year as some of the people most intimately linked to the format took their final bow. Among these were the master vocal stylists George Jones and Ray Price and the less-heralded Tompall Glaser, who was instrumental in birthing the Outlaw movement that helped make superstars of Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson. Few might recognize the name Charles Carr, but most would have heard of the shadowy figure at the wheel of the 1952 powder-blue Cadillac convertible who drove on as Hank Williams was drawing his last breaths in the back seat. This year, it was Carr's turn to take that final ride. Departing also were two pop stars who made significant forays into country music, back in the days when the division between pop and country was more porous -- Patty Andrews (of the sweet-singing Andrew Sisters) and the inimitable Patti Page (of "Tennessee Waltz" fame). CMT lost one of its own stalwarts, too, with the exit of editorial director Chet Flippo, a renowned journalist and ...

My great grandpa was in Hank Williams' band and also in the country music hall of fame in case u were wondering where my talent comes from
Rick Danko was born 71 years ago today. A Canadian musician and singer, Danko was a member of The Band. The third of four sons, Danko was born in Green's Corners, Ontario, a farming community outside of the town of Simcoe, to a musical family of Ukrainian descent. Growing up in front of the family radio (as his future bandmates also did), he was exposed to country and R&B music at an early age. His musical heroes included Hank Williams and, later, Sam Cooke. After entering the first grade in school, he performed on a four string tenor banjo. Danko formed the Rick Danko Band at the age of 12 or 13, and at 14, he left school to pursue music. At 17, already a five-year music veteran, he booked himself as the opening act for Ronnie Hawkins, an American rockabilly singer whose group, The Hawks, were considered to be one of the best in Canada. Hawkins invited Danko to join The Hawks as rhythm guitarist. Around this time, Hawks bassist Rebel Paine was fired by Hawkins, who, wasting no time, had Danko learn bass, ...

Last Picture Show; watched it around 5 a.m. this morning. 1971 and I had not seen it again until now; shame on me. No group of better looking teenagers: Timothy Bottoms, Jeff Bridges; Cybill Sheperd. The great charcter actors like Ben Johnson and Cloris Leachman. Jeff Bridges, what a wonderful career you've had; the stars have smiled on you re movie choices or maybe its your good choices alone. Peter Bogdanovich, what a guy, what a life. Enjoyed you recently on Law & Order. Now, I'll have the soundtrack and Hank Williams in my head all day. Larry McMurty: no one writes better. Now compare that totally suitable family movie to day's coming of age trashy movie. What the heck. I mistakenly turned on Outlaw country on Sirius the other day instead of Willie's Honky Tonk station: When I heard certain 4 letter words I was shocked: station was playing Metallica. I'm sorry not appropriate, esp. since enunciation so good!
RTThe Monday Night Football open is stupendous. I don't miss Hank Williams or the smashing helmets one bit.
Wow. I was just listening to Terry Gross's interview with Ray Price. Ray said that promoters would intentionally give Hank Williams alcohol because they knew he would get drunk and they wouldn't have to pay him to perform. Wow.
Let me start by saying: Phil Robertson for President. We need a redneck in the White House, flamingo yard ornaments and a fixer upper truck on the side lawn of the White House. There's nothing wrong with that. That IS Americana. Once Phil Roberston prevails (and he will, even if that means parting from A&E), he should help Hank Williams, Jr. to get back on Monday night football. He was just another redneck fired for speaking his mind (and a LOT more Americans agree with him right about now than disagree). After that, he should get the resolution of disapproval cleared from the Congressional record for another redneck: Congressman Joe Wilson of South Carolina. You'll recall, he's the one who yelled "you lie"during an Obama speech in 2009 about ObamaCare. Seems he was right, he was scolded and the one who lied had no repercussions. Shouldn't he now be commended for trying to expose a lie? Freedom of speech is something that ought not be reserved for the radical fringe. It ought to apply to everybody ...
Grew up on Hank Williams and Garth Brooks, etc.
I recall when I was a little kid and hearing Crazy Arms on my dads jukebox. But it was when I was about 10 years old that I became a Ray Price fanatic. I heard a song called Touch My Heart and that was it. Ray had already started recording songs like Danny Boy and I thought this new sound was great too, but I could never get Touch My Heart out of my head. My grandparents were the old style Hank Williams country fans. I love old Hank too. They couldn`t understand why I liked Ray so much better. I suppose I was just too young to understand back then. I just knew Ray had a classy voice and the driving bass lines were to die for. No, I didn`t understand it then, but I now know that it was COUNTRY SOUL. Chip Nall

Ray Price, a giant in the country music scene for since 1951, died yesterday at his home in Mt. Pleasant, TX. Price, a WWII vet (US Marine Corps), attended veterinary school for a brief time, singing in night clubs on the side. He was signed to Bullet Records, a Nashville-based record label. In 1951, Hank Williams called him out of the blue, inviting him to sing with Williams at the Grand Old Opry, thus cementing a lifelong friendship. Five years later, Price revolutionized the sound of country music when he put an idea he'd had into play. He described it thus in a 1998 interview with The Washington Post: "We were having trouble getting a good clean bass sound. So instead of going with the standard 2/4 beat, I said, 'Let's try a 4/4 bass and a shuffle rhythm,' and it cut. It cut clean through." He applied that technique to Crazy Arms and so was born the Ray Price Beat, and a skyrocketing career. Crazy Arms spent 20 weeks at No. 1. Mr. Price's last album, [bL1285634|Last of the Breed] (2007), was a collabo ...
Back in the day when the culture, and music began to change, men like Hank Williams, Roy Acuff, and even Elvis were rising to the top. People in the gospel music industry realized how much ppl enjoyed this style of music, thus...country gospel was born. Preachers of that day preached against it b/c it was modern and different. Now, it is called old time religion. Hay-Man. By the way, even though music and culture has changed, the truth is still the same. just sayin.
Remembering the great Ray Price and his influence on my music over the years. He covered the spectrum from Hank Williams to Bob Wills and gave Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and the likes a run for their money. Probably didn't exceed Elvis in record sales but probably had more hits on the charts but lived a longer life to achieve it. He professed his Christian faith and that he loved The Lord before he passed and I am sure he is singing with the angels.
DALLAS (AP) -- Ray Price, one of country music's most popular and influential singers and bandleaders who had more than 100 hits and was one of the last living connections to Hank Williams, died Monday. He was 87. Ray Price died Monday afternoon at his ranch outside Mount Pleasant, said Billy Mack Jr., who was acting as a family spokesman. Billie Perryman, the wife of family friend and spokesman Tom Perryman, a DJ with KKUS-FM in Tyler, also confirmed his death. Price was discharged last week from the East Texas Medical Center in Tyler, where he had been in and out in recent months as he was treated for cancer and its complications. He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2011 and it has recently spread to his liver, intestines and lungs, the hospital said. Perhaps best known for his version of the Kris Kristofferson song "For the Good Times," a pop hit in 1970, the velvet-voiced Price was a giant among traditional country performers in the 1950s, '60s and '70s, as likely to defy a trend as he was to d ...
For The Good Times Yesterday, premature rumors of the death of Ray Price, the country music superstar, set my memory-storage brain cells into action. While reminiscing and pondering the pending death of one of my favorite singers, Ray Price, I thought about how many times that I was ordered to sing "For The Good Times" as a freshman at Texas A&M. Ray Price had always been one of my favorites and this song was one of his best. Growing up on the farm near Pineland, without a TV, and only a radio and record player to break the silence, I had learned the words to pretty much every country song from the 1960s and 1970s, and a lot from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s. I was a walking encyclopedia of commonly known facts about the singers, the songs and the songwriters from those decades. I didn't know squat about the Beatles or Aerosmith, but I could tell you who Bob Wills' fiddlers were, who played steel guitar for Hank Williams and who Jim Reeves and Charley Pride played baseball for , before they became country ...
It's not true! Reports yesterday of the death of the great Ray Price are incorrect. Ray was one of the pioneers of Western Swing along with Bob Wills. some people call his rhythm the Texas shuffle, in Texas they call it the Ray Price beat. Ray was Hank Williams room mate in Nashville back in the forties. The sad truth is Ray has Pancreatic cancer and has declined treatment and gone home to be with family. As Ray said "I'm 87 and I've had a great life" Ray, Merle, and Willie are the last of the greatest generation of Country Music. Another thing, they're the three biggest pot smokers in country music as well. Godspeed Ray, it's been a blast. Without you Asleep at the Wheel would have been playing Benny Goodman.
RIP Ray Price. You are with your old friends (Bob Wills & Hank Williams) making beautiful music in heaven. You have always been my favorite singer and always will be. You will be missed.

Crazy Arms was the first song that I ever played out on a steel guitar in a bar. Whenever I hear or play a Ray Price song, it takes me right to the place of why I even love Country music with all my heart in the first place. When he knew he wanted to combine the Hank Williams' fiddle and steel with the Bob Wills' rythmn section, he gave us a gift that makes so many of us happy every day. The Big Chief has been called home and I will always cherish and love the treasures left by the Cherokee Cowboy.

MORENO, RITA Puerto Rican born Academy Award-winning actress who dated Elvis in 1957 while he was filming Loving You. - MOUNTAIN VALLEY Brand of mineral water preferred by Elvis. - Shaun (a.k.a. Sherrill) Nielson & Elvis It is well documented that Elvis Presley enjoyed listening to Southern gospel quartets. Many of his close friends and associates were singers he met through gospel music. One such friend and eventual back up singer was Shaun (a.k.a. Sherrill) Nielsen. Shaun was born in Montgomery, Alabama. He served in the Air Force and was a soloist for the Strategic Air Command Band.

7. Kate Smith- I had several thoughts about Dec 7th and who I would "appreciate"….of course my first thoughts were all those who served in the military and kept all this possible, but I couldn’t narrow to one….Frank Rowell maybe, Hull boy who died at Pearl Harbor. The AADHD kicked in and I thought of “God Bless America” and of course that took me to Kate Smith. When we finally got a TV sometime in the early ‘50s my Mama loved the musical shows. We watched Your Hit Parade, Dinah Shore, Perry Como, Curly Fox and of course The Kate Smith Hour. The first time the Grand Old Opera folks were on national TV was in 1954 on the Kate Smith Hour…..even Dad loved that one with Hank Williams. Kate Smith was built a lot like my grandmother, stout; and she sang in the range Mama and I did, alto. She didn’t fit the pattern and yet she was successful and she inspired. Yes, I appreciate the gift of a beautiful rendition of what many consider our national song but I also will always remember, “When the Moo ...

Garth deserves it but no one other than and these artist deserves it too that have paved the way for country artist , Hank Williams ,Johnny Cash artist like that on the top of my head . It's Sad that they're not awarded that award. They should be more aware of real artist who can really sing and made a contribution to country with music and legacy instead of cookie cutter artist made by electronics or technolgy and smoke and mirrors
Go from Five Finger Death Punch to Patsy Cline, Patsy to Mormon Tabernacle Choir, MTC to Hank Williams, Hank to George Jones, and George to Gaelic Storm. Some say I have music ADD. I just think I have a wide variety of taste in music.

Day 24: I want to thank the Lord for music, and ears to hear it. My whole life has been gift wrapped in music, and my brother's too. We have always had a deep appreciation for it, and with the exception of hard rock, and modern jazz, we love it all. My first love is southern gospel, then dixie land jazz, then comes the old country music, which sadly is buried forever. Neil Sadaka, Hank Williams, ( OOPS ) Mickey Gilley, Ronnie Milsap, George Jones, Freddie Fender, Willie Nelson, and Ray Charles will always be my favorites. Then the icing on the cake is David Phelps, Michael English, Ivan Parker, Janet Paschal, Vestal Goodman, Alyson Speer, and Sherry Easter. What a blessing Bill Gaither has given us. Thank you Lord for music.

my musical journey, "from Honky Tonk to Hill West" A look at the history of country music, and the artists who paved the road for the superstars of the industry today. One of the most popular forms of contemporary music is country music, which found its humble beginnings in the early 1920s when folk music was taken one step further. Those who claimed fame, (mostly from the Appalachians) for having introduced folk music to the nation were now in the first quarter of the twentieth century introducing a slightly more sophisticated styling of the "˜hillbilly' sound already made popular. HONKY TONK SOUND In the eighty plus years of country music history, its sound and style has changed dramatically, at least in some respects. In its earliest years, it was the honky-tonk sound from the likes of Ernest Tubb and Hank Williams that made up the genre of country music. Roadside pubs and meeting houses throughout Oklahoma and Texas were packed every Friday and Saturday evening with fans and curiosity seekers alike, ...
Hank Williams wrote the words. Bob Dylan wrote the melody.
Eight things you might not know about me: 1) I used to literally play church and preach to my stuffed animals. 2) One of my mentors was *** Logan of the Louisiana Hayride. (He worked with Elvis, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Sr. et cetera. 3) I created and hosted the NE Louisiana Gospel Hayride. 4) At age 16 I had my first TV show (I later hosted other TV shows). 5) My cousin married Jerry Lee Lewis' cousin. 6) Before the Internet days I worked in one state and commuted to a university in another (Mississippi/Louisiana Kansas/Missouri Indiana/Ohio) three different times. 7) I've read the Bible through 18 times so far (if my records are accurate) and 8) I've held seminars in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. I have others but 8 was my number. I might add, I've failed enough to KNOW every success I've had is a gift from GOD.
George Harvey Strait was born on May 18, 1952, in Poteet, in Atascosa County, south of San Antonio, Texas, to John Byron Strait, Sr. (born c. 1921 - died June 4, 2013), and the former Doris Couser. He grew up in Pearsall, in Frio County, where his father was a junior high school mathematics teacher and the owner of a 2,000-acre (8 km²) cattle ranch outside of Big Wells, Texas. The family worked at the ranch on the weekends and in the summers. When George was in the fourth grade, his father and mother were divorced, and his mother moved away with his sister, Pency. George and his brother John, Jr., or "Buddy" (1950-2009), were reared by their father. Strait began his musical interest while attending Pearsall High School, where he played in a rock and roll garage band. His musical preference soon turned to country with singers Hank Thompson, Lefty Frizzell, Merle Haggard, George Jones, Bob Wills, Hank Williams, and Frank Sinatra influencing his style. Strait did not tune to the country music radio of ...

I thought I would look at who people consider the "Greatest Country Singer of all Time." What crackhead puts Garth Brooks ahead of Hank Snow!?!? The same crackhead that puts George Jones at number 12. The dingbat who wrote that list put Johnny Cash as I can understand an argument for Hank Williams, George Jones, or Roy Acuff for that spot, but not Johnny Cash. Cash is definitely in the top 20, but I wouldn't be bold enough to put him at I guess I will make a short list, my Top Ten: 10. Johnny Horton 9. Willie Nelson 8. Merle Haggard 7. Kitty Wells 6. Patsy Cline 5. Lefty Frizzell 4. Jimmie Rodgers 3. Roy Acuff 2. George Jones 1. Hank Williams Feel free to dispute this list, because this is my interpretation. For those who have never heard of the Mississippi Blue Yodeler (Jimmie Rodgers) or Roy Acuff, I suggest listening to the prehistoric era of Country Music, it's truly worth a listen. Honorable mentions for my list: Johnny Cash, Tex Ritter, Ernest Tubb, Marty Robbins, Hank Snow, Ronnie Milsap, Jim Reeve ...
FYI ONE of the songs Elvis Presley liked to perform in the ’70s was Joe South’s “Walk a Mile in My Shoes,” its message clearly spelled out in the title. Enlarge This Image Jeffrey Smith Sometimes he would preface it with the 1951 Hank Williams recitation “Men With Broken Hearts,” which may well have been South’s original inspiration. “You’ve never walked in that man’s shoes/Or saw things through his eyes/Or stood and watched with helpless hands/While the heart inside you dies.” For Elvis these two songs were as much about social justice as empathy and understanding: “Help your brother along the road,” the Hank Williams number concluded, “No matter where you start/For the God that made you made them, too/These men with broken hearts.” In Elvis’s case, this simple lesson was not just a matter of paying lip service to an abstract principle. It was what he believed, it was what his music had stood for from the start: the breakdown of barriers, both musical and racial. This is n ...

Usually hate driving home in the dark after working, but it was probably a good thing. Had the old CD player cranked up singing along to the 3 Pears album by Dwight Yoakum. Hard to believe it will be a year ago in December that we saw him in Montgomery at the Performing Arts Center. What a great concert! No pyrotechnics , no crazy costumes , just good old country music the way it should be. He was feeling bad that night but he said there was "No Way", he was going to miss performing in Hank Williams hometown. Great concert!
For years I have heard people say --Shreveport should have been Nashville. Let me try to explain why it didn't happen. Years ago when the Louisiana Hayride was in it's heyday, unknown locals like Nat Stuckey, Claude King, Slim Whitman, Johnny Horton, David Houston, Faron Young, and even Hank Williams, all got together on Saturday night to put in a show. Remember these were local boys. Their talent was soon recognized and lured away by Nashville, because that's where the writers, publishing companies, recording studios, and the Grand Ole Opry was. Once Nashville had lured them away, they found a set to keep them. As a member of the Opry, they had to perform 26 shows a year, thus preventing them from wandering too far away. Nashville had a tourist bureau that saw the potential that the music industry had, and tirelessly went after it as a way to bring people to Nashville. Bankers were industry friendly, loaning money for music projects. There were studios for recording. Producers, writers, musicians, peopl ...
"Music of the 1950's reflected the beginnings of major social changes in the world and in the US, especially. Rock 'n' Roll, R&B, and traditional pop ruled the charts while radio and television connected the country in our musical tastes and exposed the nation to a greater variety of artists and styles. Some of the first major superstars of music emerged from this decade with people like Elvis Presley dominating the airwaves and the minds of young girls. Popular Genres: Traditional Pop, Rock 'n' Roll, Rhythm & Blues, Country, Jazz, Blues, Calypso, Vocal Jazz Popular Artists: Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly, Fats Domino, The Everly Brothers, Patti Page, Doris Day, Johnny Cash, Nat King Cole, Tony Bennett, Dean Martin, Pat Boone, Gene Autry, Patsy Cline, Same Cooke, Hank Williams, Teresa Brewer, Ritchie Valens, Harry Belafonte, Ray Charles"
Connie Smith begins the evening with a Hank Williams gospel tune.
By this point, Jones' singing style had evolved from the full-throated, high lonesome sound of Hank Williams and Roy Acuff to Lefty Frizzell
The Texas quote of the day: "Not long after my second birthday, Hank Williams made his next-to-last public appearance at Cook’s Hoedown, East Houston’s premier hillbilly nightspot. Rejecting the notion that I was too young to enjoy the experience, my father appointed me his preferred companion for the evening. Hoisted high on his shoulders, my legs straddling his neck, I felt my senses dawning in this new world like the first few pieces being fitted into a puzzle. The eddy of cool air wafting down from overhead awakened the feeling I was somewhere very different from my usual surroundings, the hush of anticipation in the audience stirring the suspicion that I was part of something incomprehensibly great. A thunderous man-made roar tested the building’s rafters for structural weakness and overwhelmed my fledgling sensory receptors even further, but somehow I was made to understand that this kaleidoscope of sound, color and chaos was nothing I need fear. And then there was the light. Two weeks shy of ...

Sweetback Sisters to Bring Retro-Country Approach to Club Helsinki Hudson (HUDSON, N.Y.) - Retro-country ensemble the Sweetback Sisters brings its classic 1950s Nashville sound to Club Helsinki Hudson on Sunday, December 15, at 8pm. Vocalists Zara Bode and Emily Miller share a love for Hank Williams and the family-style harmonies of everyone from the Everly Brothers to the Judds, and the group's rootsy musicians apply themselves to arrangements that recall country music's golden era, occasionally updated for the 21st century. The Sweetback Sisters stir up their twangy magic in artisanal Brooklyn, N.Y. - the new Nashville. Kansas-born Emily Miller was raised in Hong Kong, where she spread the gospel of American music in a family band. In the Sweetback Sisters, she handles fiddle and guitar chores as well as vocals. Zara Bode's singing first drew attention at the Pioneer Valley (Mass.) School of Performing Arts, and she also brings a musical theatre background to her performance, which includes guitar. The ...

weekly American radio program featuring live country and western music. The nation's oldest continuous radio show, it was first broadcast in 1925 on Nashville's WSM as an amateur showcase. Founded and shaped by station manager George Dewey Hay ( "The Solemn Old Judge" ), it was called the WSM Barn Dance until 1926. Hiring professionals beginning in 1930, the Opry won wider popularity during the decade as Roy Acuff starred and other country luminaries became regulars; in 1939 it debuted nationally on NBC. The Opry moved to a permanent home, the Ryman Auditorium, in the early 1940s, and established a live stage show there. By the end of the 1950s it was the nation's favorite radio program. As it developed in importance, so did the city of Nashville, which became America's country music capital. Over the years, the Opry has featured a wide variety of country styles and its cast has been a virtual who's who of the field, including the Carter family, Ernest Tubbs, Bill Monroe, Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Kitty ...

My nephew John asked me to list my top five songs...so hard to do because I like so many different types of music and artists, but I'll try anyway...(I Can't Get No) Satisfastion by the Rolling Stones; Across the Universe by the Beatles; Folsom Prison Blues by Johhny Cash; I Can't Help It (If I'm Still In Love With You) by Hank Williams; I've Been Loving You Too Long by Otis Redding; Greenback Dollar by the Kingston Trio; I'm Wild About That Thing by Bessie Smith; All Along the Watchtower by Jimi Hendrix; Up Around the Bend by CCR; and My Blue Heaven by Fats Domino.

Since returning to Sebastopol, I have a Monday night gig playing my uke & singing for the residents at Mirabel Lodge, a residential care facility in nearby Forestville. With my treasure trove of 20th-century songs from the Dr. Uke website, it's almost impossible to disappoint this enthusiastic audience; Mitch Miller, Peter, Paul & Mary, Sam Cooke, Hank Williams, Rogers & Hammerstein, even Lennon & McCartney — as Duke Ellington put it, "If it sounds good, it IS good." Tonight, I finished with what has become my favorite closer, "Singin' the Blues" (learned from McCartney's 1991 "Unplugged" performance), thanked my listeners and headed for the door. On the way out, a computer tech was ministering to the office's server; he gave me a thumbs-up, then started his own rendition of "Singin' the Blues". Smiling broadly, he told me "Every Monday night I come home singing, and my wife says 'Where have you been, anyway?'" How marvelous that the English word for what musicians do is — PLAY.

"Well, if you’re travelin’ in the north country fair Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline, Remember me to one who lives there. She once was a true love of mine" The amazing album "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan" turns 50 this year. This one album captured the true sound of America in one record as much as anything by Hank Williams, George Gershwin, Aaron Copland or Hoagy Carmichael. It brought folk from college campuses onto radio in a non-radio friendly, non-pop, non-diluted form for the first time. And in my opinion, Dylan has never been better or transcended more on two sides than on this record.

Happy Birthday to the greatest singer/songwriter that ever lived. Hank Williams. May his legacy live on forever. His songs, that he wrote, had meaning and substance and something that Luke Bryan has never heard of - metaphors. He was an artist. A true artist. He wrote about real life experiences, something that is lost in popular country these days. But, here's the thing, ya'll. Country music never died and is not dead currently. It's just not on the radio. (Unless you're in Texas.) Thank God for Hank Williams.
Today in music history.September 17th 1923, Born on this day, Hank Williams, the biggest country star ever. He scored 36 Top 10 Country hits including, 'Your Cheating Heart' and 'Hey Good Lookin'. Williams died, age 29, in the backseat of a Cadillac on January 1st, 1953 on the way to a gig. 1931, The first long-play(LP) audio record, a 33 1/3 rpm recording, was demonstrated at the Savoy Plaza Hotel in New York by RCA-Victor.
