One son, also named Hank, would grow on to become a more accomplished musician than his father. The singer, composer, and musician known as Bocephus or Hank Williams Junior is Randall Hank Williams.
Hank experienced his “Eureka!” moment in the middle of the 1970s. He determined which musical genre(s) suited him best and began pursuing them.
The opening song was deleted, however, after Hank made a number of contentious remarks that cast him in a negative light. It was again employed in 2017. Hank was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in August of last year.
His musical career was put on hold for two years as he recovered from a near-fatal mountain climbing accident. His albums One Night Stands and The New South were released in 1977.
Following the September 11th attacks, he released the song America Can Survive. “Red White and Pink-Slip Blues” peaked at number 43 on country charts in 2009. The companion album, “127 Rose Avenue,” debuted at number seven on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart.
