Your Cheatin' Heart


by Hank Williams


The Official Hank Williams site from Lost Highway Records

You can hear music, see videos, and get bits of news related to Williams—although, since he died nearly 60 years ago, the news piece is a little sparse.

Hank Williams Jr. Official Website

The site hypes up Jr.'s (very real) popularity, but it will always be debatable how much of it is driven by dad's legacy.

Hank Williams III Official Website

The singer, who often just calls himself "III," can't help capitalizing on his granddad's good name—especially because (unlike his dad) Hank the Third bears a striking resemblance to Hank Sr. But III actually launched his music career as a drummer in punk and hardcore bands, and he is promoting his latest album with punk band Assjack.

Reinstate Hank

This is the site for an ongoing campaign to reinstate Hank Williams to the Grand Ole Opry. They fired him in 1952 because of problems stemming from his substance abuse, and he died just months later.
