Along with Johnny Cash, Hank Williams is considered the most influential artist in country music. With few exceptions, he wrote his own songs during a career that lasted only six years, songs full of poetry, emotion and (self)experience.

Almost every important country musician has covered Hank Williams' songs. The selection was difficult. But we are sure that with this compilation we will make visible the incredible impact of Hank Williams in the history of popular music.

Bear Family Records proudly dedicates a CD album to one of the greatest icons of U.S. music history, featuring recordings of his idols and some of the best cover versions of his immortal songs.
