Hank is known as one of the most influential American singers and songwriters of the twentieth century. He recorded thirty five top ten singles, with eleven reaching number one.
He was born with spina bifida occulta which gave him constant back pain and contributed to his alcohol and drug dependence.
He was just twenty nine years old when he died.
It’s hard to imagine Country Music without the influence of Hank Williams Senior, and he has been an inspiration to countless music stars from Country to Rock and Roll.
