HONKY TONK BLUES - Hank Williams Story
U.S. documentary. Excellent quality. Extended, un-cut version. Amazing rare film footage and photographs mixed with interviews past and present with relatives and those who new him. Artists comment on Hank's music, life and influence.

Honky Tonk Blues explains Williams' importance as an influential artist and American original. Produced with an understated fascination for the country legend's talents and demons that shortened his career, played havoc with his marriages, and led to a haunting death at age 29.

Honky Tonk Blues builds a seamless profile from rare footage and vivid interviews with (among others) Rick Bragg, Big Bill Lister (Williams' longtime opening act), Hank Williams Jr., and members of Williams' backup band, the Drifting Cowboys.

Williams' story tells of his mentorship in the blues by Rufus "Tee Tot" Payne, childhood loneliness, and emergence as an emotional singer-songwriter "who taught people it's okay to bear your soul in everyday language." Honky Tonk Blues is thoroughly compelling and resonates with many American originals that followed him. An outstanding documentary. Roy Acuff, Little Jimmy Dickens, George Jones, Big Bill Lister, Frank Page, Minnie Pearl, Ray Price, Hank Williams Jr., Hank Williams III, Audrey Williams, Jett Williams, Claude King and many others.
