Williams Jr. Background
Hank Williams Jr. was surrounded by country music since the moment he was born, as his father
was the iconic country superstar, Hank Williams. However, Hank Jr. never truly got to know his father, as Hank Sr. tragically
died when his son was just three years old. This didn't stop country music from being a big part of his childhood, though,
as some of country's biggest artists visited the Williams' household regularly and influenced Hank Jr. with their musical
styles. Some of these visitors included Johnny Cash, Fats Domino, and Earl Scruggs. With all of the encouragement and musical
influence he received throughout his early years, Hank Williams Jr. decided to perform one of his father's songs on stage
when he was just eight years old.
Williams also played an integral part in the 1964 film, Your Cheatin' Heart, a musical
about the life of his father, whom he provided the vocals for. Throughout the early part of his career, his father remained
a huge influence on him, as Williams largely imitated his father's style and even re-recorded many of his father's songs.
It wasn't until he moved to Alabama that Hank was able to refocus his creative energy and start to hone his own personal creative
vision. His musical style started to evolve into a Southern rock and country blues genre, a noticeable departure from his
father's musical style. It was this style that has made Hank Williams Jr. the country superstar that he is today.
