0a2caa2c67f3ff3a5ad9797f141c06e551zdAdxQwTL._SL500_AA280_HANK WILLIAMS SR. NOT ONLY CHANGED THE SOUND OF COUNTRY MUSIC BUT HIS MUSIC BECAME THE SOUND OF SOME OF THE BIG POP AND ROCK AND ROLL SOUNDS THE WORLD WOULD COME TO KNOW. HANK WAS BORN HIRAM KING WILLIAMS ON SEPTEMBER 17, 1923 IN MOUNT OLIVE, ALABAMA. HE DIED ON JANUARY 1, 1953 ON HIS WAY TO A CONCERT IN CANTON, OHIO. HE WAS 29 YEARS OLD.
I HIS LIFETIME HE WOULD CHART 33 COUNTRY HITS. HIS FIRST WOULD BE MOVE IT ON OVER, CHARTING IN AUGUST OF 1947 AND CLIMBING THE COUNTRY MUSIC CHART TO #4. BETWEEN 1947 AND 1952 HANK WOULD CHART 8 #1 HITS, WITH ONLY 3 OF HIS RECORDS NOT REACHING THE TOP 10 AND THEY WOULD BECOME #12 AND #14 HITS…NOT BAD AT ALL. HIS MUSIC WOULD CONTINUE TO RULE THE COUNTRY MUSIC CHARTS AFTER HIS PASSING. HIS NEXT THREE HITS AFTER HIS PASSING REACHED #1 ON THE COUNTRY CHARTS AND HE WOULD PLACE A TOTAL OF 42 HITS ON THE BILLBOARD COUNTRY MUSIC CHARTS.
HE WORKED ON THE LOUISIANA HAYRIDE FROM 1948-1949
THE GRAND OLE OPRY FROM 1949-1952
FORMED HIS OWN BAND..THE DRIFTING COWBOYS
ALSO RECORDED AS LUKE THE DRIFTER, HE WAS ELECTED TO THE COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME IN 1961 AND THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME IN 1987 AS A FOREFATHER OF ROCK AND ROLL.
HIS 5 BIGGEST HIT RECORDS ARE: 1-LOVESICK BLUES 1949 #1 FOR 16 WEEKS (42 WEEKS ON THE COUNTRY CHART)
2-JAMBALAYA (ON THE BAYOU) 1952 #1 FOR 14 WEEKS
3-KAW-LIGA 1953 #1 13 WEEKS
4-WHY DON’T YOU LOVE ME 1950 #1 FOR 10 WEEKS
5-HEY GOOD LOOKIN’ 1951 #1 FOR 8 WEEKS
HANK WOULD CHART 3 MORE HITS AFTER HIS PASSING, FOR A TOTAL OF 11 #1 HITS BETWEEN 1947 AND 1953.
SOME OF HIS TUNES WOULD BECOME BIG HITS FOR OTHER ARTISTS..COLD COLD HEART FOR TONY BENNETT, MY BUCKETS GOT A HOLE IN IT, FOR RICKY NELSON. BJ THOMAS WOULD HAVE A MILLION SELLER WITH, I’M SO LONESOME I COULD CRY AND JERRY LEE LEWIS WOULD HAVE A BIG HIT WITH, YOU WIN AGAIN..JUST TO NAME A FEW, THE LIST GOES ON AND ON.
TO SAY HE TURNED COUNTRY MUSIC ON ITS EAR WOULD BE AN UNDERSTATEMENT..HIS MUSIC CONTINUES TO INFLUENCE ARTISTS TODAY…THERE IS ONLY ONE HANK WILLIAMS.

TILL THE NEXT TIME—JOE (JOE T)
