This site is
dedicated to memory of the Late Hank Williams, born in Butler County
Alabama September 17, 1923. Hank is a rags to riches story about a poor
young south Alabama country boy who rose to fame and fortune to become
the greatest country singer/songwriter country music has ever know.
Although he died at the young age of 29 on New Years Morning 1953, no
other one person has contributed as much to the country music genre.
Hank sang about the people. Hank sang about love, broken hearts, happy
songs, and songs with a serious message. He was especially talented
when he sang songs under the "Luke the Drifter" name which
showed serious side of this talented man. His narrations of these songs
such as "Be Careful of Stones that You Throw", "I've
Been Down that Road Before", "Men with Broken Hearts"
and many others. His classics "Cold Cold Heart", "Your
Cheatin' Heart" " Kawliga", "I Can't Help It"
are still being sung and recorded today. They still touch our hearts
