Lovesick Blues: The Life of Hank Williams Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hank Williams, the quintessential country music singer and songwriter, lived a life as lonesome, desolate, and filled with sorrow as his timeless songs. From Williams's dirt- poor beginnings as a sickly child to his emergence as a star of the Grand Ole Opry, Lovesick Blues is the definitive biography of the man and his music.

Synopsis:

Hank Williams' story reads like fiction: dirt-poor beginnings as a sickly child, learning music from a black street singer and refining it in raucous honky-tonks during the Depression, and emerging as a Grand Ole Opry star. He mined his experiences to write songs that will live forever.
