Hank III to release new album on April 17th
Hank III has a new project, "Long Gone Daddy", being released on April 17th. The package is a 10-song collection that has Hank III paying homage to his grandfather, Hank Williams, Sr ("I’m A Long Gone Daddy," "Neath A Cold Gray Tomb of Stone," and the title track, as well as Merle Haggard ("The Bottle Let Me Down"), Johnny Cash ("Wreck of the Old 97") and Waylon & Willie ("Good Hearted Woman").
The singer-songwriter Hank Williams influenced most – on this record, at least – is Hank III, whose remarkable vocal, including yodeling sendoff on the title track, would have been just right on a circa 1950 Grand Ole Opry or Louisiana Hayride stage.
