If y'all just take a moment to close your eyes and listen to Hank Williams III Grand Ole Opry performance, you might just think you're listening to Hank Sr. himself. Hank III's rendition of "Lovesick Blues" and "Moanin' The Blues" is absolutely phenomenal and definitely worth a listen or two. Or perhaps three.

"Lovesick Blues" became an overnight success when it was released in 1949, the same year as Hank's Opry debut where he performed that song. Legend says that he received six encores. It has been covered several times since then. "Moanin' The Blues" was released in 1951 and peaked at the #1 spot on the US Country chart. 

The introduction came from the legendary Little Jimmy Dickens. He started out speaking about Hank Williams, touring with him, and how they became very close friends. Little Jimmy went on to reminisce about watching Hank Jr. grow up and then began on Hank III, saying, "Now we're all blessed by being able to watch this young man's career grow."

Hank III's performance is a must-see. He really nailed it and his grandfather would, without a doubt, be proud. Enjoy!
