Editors’ Notes

Hank Williams III takes his family’s legacy quite seriously. His granddaddy is a legendary figure known as much for his wanton ways as his impeccable songwriting and singing. HWIII has always lived the wild side of life and his songs emphasize this at every honky-tonk twist. “Candidate for Suicide,” “P.F.F.” (Punch, Fight, F**k), and “Stoned & Alone” play up the man’s outlaw status at every turn. His band tramps all over traditional country, playing loud and strong with steel guitars and dobros slamming through the tough gutted beats. “If You Can’t Help Your Own” swaggers with the sound of a 1950’s gin mill band. “I Wish I Knew” slows things down for a first class tear-in-your-beer ballad. “Long Hauls and Close Calls” establishes a friendship with Satan while a banjo careens out of control. Williams falls down drunk for “Me & My Friends” and rails against the injustice his family has suffered at the hands of the country music establishment with “The Grand Ole Opry (Ain’t So Grand).” The Williams family tree has deep roots and apples that don’t fall far from the original inspiration.

Customer Reviews

I'm buyin' because I'm a fan, but ....

Shelton, I'm one of your biggest fans on the southern side of things, but this is no where close to S2H. You need to let the producers in a titch on the next one. I think you're extremely talented ... I also think you went overboard trying to do your own thing here or whatever, and letting that be the focus, without any objective input during the process, and without the caliber of musicians you had backing you on most of S2H. Your creativity (and heritage) isn't here anymore, the musical talent isn't here, and the lack of professional production is evident. I'm not saying be a slave to producers or "Nashville", but I am saying you need to have experienced people you trust giving you objective feedback to channel your genius -- and you do have genius ... it's in your bones ... I've heard it and I've seen it firsthand ... and it ain't on this record. Everybody knows you're not afraid to cuss a lot and put drinking and drugs in your lyrics. Cool. You got that out there. But nobody really cares about that in isolation, and that doesn't make it good music. Don't waste what you have, brother. I''ll buy every album you ever sell. But I hope you put your shoulder and your heritage into the next one -- I'll have a hard time sellin' this one to the same friends I turned on to S2H and recruited to go to the concerts.

Awesome

Another kicka** CD from the third generation of country royalty. Great stuff. The only way these songs are lacking in the least is lyrically, but the music and attitude more than make up for that. Keep up the friggin' awesome work telling Nashville where to go!

Reinstate Hank!!!

The Grand Ole Opry Aint so Grand Anymore says it all! The Hellbilly is back. This is what country music is supposed to sound like. Forget Trashville Tenn. Bye the album, it rocks!

As the grandson of Hank Williams and the son of Hank Jr., Hank Williams III was country music royalty before he ever sang a note. But he didn't immediately follow his forebears musically, choosing instead to bang around the Southeast, playing drums in punk and hardcore combos and smoking prodigious amounts of weed before he began pursuing a career in country music. It was the outlaw spirit of his lineage, alive and unwell...
