Hank Williams crowded a lot of living into twenty-nine years. It is difficult to understand how a man who possessed such a natural gift could produce this abundance of musical wealth in a few short years with a total disregard for proper rest, relaxation, or moderation, even to the extent of his untimely death.
It is safe to say, perhaps Hank Williams said all he had to say.
