Hank Williams – Separated at Birth.

Hiram King “Hank” Williams (September 17, 1923 – January 1, 1953) was an American singer-songwriter and musician.

I can’t overstate what a huge influence Hank Williams has been on what I do musically.  “The Sensational Country Blues Wonders!” cover eight of his songs in concert: “You’re Gonna Change Or I’m Gonna Leave”, “Your Cheatin’ Heart”, “I Can’t Help It If I’m Still In Love With You”, “You Win Again”, “Why Don’t You Love Me Like You Used To Do”, “Cold Cold Heart”, “Hey Good Looking”, and “I Saw The Light”.  We performed as Hank Williams in 2018 at The Ghost of Uncle Joe in Jersey City – an annual event in Harsimus Cemetery with local musicians performing covers of famous bands.
