HANK WILLIAMS [2006] Calling You

OK, this one might be a strange post, I have put reggae and dub beside punk on this blog, but now it's time to have some country music on Nečista Savjest. Hank Williams is a father of Hank Williams Jr. (cheesy country music star) and grandfather of Hank III (some of you might have heard of him). Hank Williams was a country singer troubled with alcohol problems who died in 1953 being only 29 years old (and if you believe the Wikipedia article about him, he died not from alcohol but from morphine overdose). I had to put him on here as he is one of the two country artists I like (second one is, oh so predictable, Johnny Cash) and this is a quite good compilation of his works (I do wish Hank's “Angel Of Death” was on this CD, then it would be a 100% perfect release). If your girl left you, and you're all alone, and feeling depressed while trying to find a meaning of life in this confusing world we all live in, I would recommend listening to Hank Williams, he will at least make your troubles seem smaller when compared to his own. Hank WIlliams was a great guy, and his music rocks, and I don't care what anyone thinks about me saying that!

I don't know too much about country music but I'm interested to know a good singer with good lyrics.
I will try with this one, thanks!

I hope you like him, it is very early country (around 1950) so it is also pretty basic considering the themes it covers... You can't miss with Johnny Cash, as he did so many songs so there must be at least one you might like... And, I guess country is like any other music style, you just have to explore it and find what you like, it has a lot of crap, but also some good things.

from this post is obvious that you are a fan of GG Allin, because Allin idolized country music legend Hank Williams:)

@ Anon - I like GG, mostly his stuff with the Jabbers. Though, for example, beside country music I also like beer and booze, and that doesn't make me a GG fan although he loved it too :P
