Hank Williams III


I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Hank Williams III (aka Hank3) about his four new CD releases. Williams is a prolific songwriter who comes from music royalty; he is the grandson of Hank Williams and the son of Hank Williams Jr.. As one might expect Hank3 is well versed in many genres of music and In 2011 he released, Ghost to a Ghost/Gutter Town (a two disc country record), 3 Bar Ranch Cattle Callin’ (a metal record) and Attention Deficit Domination (a doom rock record). After many years with a major label Williams is now doing things by himself, on his own terms. He’s currently touring in support of all four records with shows that are each three and a half hour long adventures. Here’s what Williams had to say about the records, the touring and what it is like to finally be free to do exactly what he wants.
