“Old Hank'” Would Have Been 89 Today
At Big Frog 104, we know the roots of country music, and Hank Williams Sr., or “Old Hank” as he’s referred to was one of country’s legendary originals. Artists are still singing his songs today. Hank wrote and sang such classics as “Your Cheatin’ Heart”, “Hey, Good Lookin'” and “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry”, and only live to age 29 – he would have been 89 years old today. Today, we’ll lead off our “Country Classic Double” at 11:30 a.m. with “Hey, Good Lookin'”.
Here’s a grainy video kine-scope, recorded right off the TV screen onto film of “Old Hank” singing “Hey, Good Lookin'” at the Grand Ole Opry. And, you’ll notice a very young June Carter (before Johnny) clowning around.
