Family Tradition-Three Generations of Hank Williams

Family Tradition-Three Generations of Hank Williams
Covering three generations of Hank Williams, Family Tradition is both unique and vast in scope. Beginning in the present day with Hank III - who gave the author unprecedented access - and time-traveling across the years, this examines just what kind of rebel mojo inspired this crazed family of country music, from Hank Sr. - often regarded as one of the most influential of American musicians - to Hank Jr., to this year's model, Hank III, who has somehow found a way to reconcile his legacy's deep-rooted twang and high-lonesome sound with particularly searing strains of punk and heavy metal, launching an all-out war with traditional Nashville in the process.
