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 even today.
