The Ride / Midnight In Montgomery

Hank Williams

He was only 29 on New Year's Day 1953 when he passed away, but the influence of Hank Williams and his songs have been so pervasive in Country Music that almost 60 years later when the song says, "The whole world calls me Hank", it  only means one man.

Two great ghost songs have been written about performers meeting up with him when they were looking for direction, and one great song by another original who took a different road to become his own kind of legend.
