Closing it out Two remakes Performed by My Co Host Jake Penrod followed by a 1/1/ 1953 Radio Recording Announcing the Death of Hank Williams including a Gospel tune from Hank I'm Bound For The Promised Land.
Friends Hank "Officially" Passed Away January 1 1953 @ The age of only 29 Monday Jan 1 2018 will mark 65 Years since his passing. NO One has had More Impact on not only Country Music but American Music in general than Hank. My Original Saying Good Music Never Has an Expiration Date is proved in the fact Not only that Hank is still Popular and Loved but his Songs are still being recorded in Just about every Genera of Music many times every year and I would Bet always will be. In My Personal Opinion he's The Greatest Male Song Writer who ever lived.
