Hank Williams Jr. Background

Williams' father was a legend in the music industry, and he passed his love for music and performing onto his son. After his father's tragic and untimely death when he was just a child, Williams learned about music mainly from his mother, who exposed him to great artists like Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, and Jerry Lee Lewis.

Williams initially started out his career by imitating his father's classic sound, largely at the encouragement of his mother. He become known as a "Hank Williams impersonator", and while he enjoyed this for a while, he eventually realized that he wanted to develop his own unique sound. He released a few songs while he was still trying to define his sound, achieving moderate success yet battling drug and alcohol abuse. In 1975, Williams experienced an epiphany after a near-fatal accident. While he was climbing Ajax Peak in Montana, the snow collapsed from beneath his feet and he plummeted nearly 500 feet onto a rock. He sustained severe injuries, resulting in many scars and disfigurement to his face, but by some stroke of luck he survived. To hide all his disfigurement from the accident, he grew his beard out and started to wear hats and sunglasses, elements that became intrinsic to his signature look.

After this life-altering event, Williams knew he had to find his own sound and follow his own creative passions. After that realization, Williams became a huge country sensation and has won numerous awards and accolades. Some of his most prestigious awards and honors include an induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, the Johnny Cash Visionary Award, numerous Emmy Awards, countless Academy of Country Music awards and nominations, Grammy Awards, Country of Music Association awards, and countless others. His prolific career, creative energy, and true musical talent have made him one of the most respected country artists of all time, and he hasn't just lived up to his father's reputation, he has surpassed it.
