REVIEW: The DVD every country music fan has been waiting for featuring 25 minutes of never-before-seen footage. This award winning documentary uses classic performance footage, rare archival material and interviews with family and friends (including Hank Williams Jnr, George Jones, Roy Acuff and Anita Carter) to chart the highs and lows of Hank’s tumultuous, groundbreaking career – from his farm boy upbringing in Alabama learning blues guitar from black street musicians, through his stellar rise to the top of the country charts and Grand Ole Opry billing with songs like “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry”, to his final years when alcohol abuse and chronic back problems reduced him to playing local beer halls.
Hank Williams: Honky Tonk Blues is the definitive expose of the original king of country music.
