Remembering Hank Williams Through Story and Song
This album is a Piece of Country Music History. Big Bill Lister,
the former frontman and best friend to Hank Williams Sr., recently
went into the studio to present the history of these two pioneers
in the Country Music Industry. Big Bill presents six of Hank's
biggest hits including "Jambalaya" "Cold Cold Heart"
"I Can't Help It" "Long Gone Daddy" ""Long
Gone Lonesome Blues" and "Your Cheating Heart.
Hank not only was a close friend of Big Bill, but also contributed
much to his career. Big Bill also includes three songs that Hank
Sr. wrote for him including "Countrified" "The
Little House That We Built" and "There's A Tear In My
The songs are intermingled with some of the most incredible stories
of Hank Williams ever told. Bill reflects on his first meeting
with the Country Music Hall of Famer, how they got acquainted,
stories on the road and of course the demise of Hank. Big Bill
also tells some great road stories that have never been told before.
This album is sanctioned and endorsed by both of Hank's children
Hank Williams Jr. and Jett Williams.
This album contains over an hour of stories and songs about the
Hank Williams legacy.
"Big Bill Lister-his talent, his stories and his experiences
are traditional country music national treasures," Jett Williams
said. "He was my father's friend and now he is the historian
of their time together. This album is a fitting tribute to their
roles at the head waters of this industry. We should all be thankful
Big Bill tood the time and made the effort to share his life and
his talent with us in this magnificent effort."
