Forty-one years after his death, Hank Williams is still, and will always be, considered a huge country star. And this was back in 1994!

Alan Jackson stepped on stage at the Roots of Country TV Special, performed Hank Williams' 1948 hit "Lovesick Blues", and definitely rocked it!

While he introduced the song, Jackson announced that two members of Hank Williams' original band, The Drifting Cowboys would be performing with him. Steel guitar player Don Helms and fiddler Jerry Rivers played with Jackson, who said it was, "an honor".

Jackson sang "Lovesick Blues" with a perfect yodel and a Hank Williams-feel. It's almost as if you could feel Williams' presence while watching this performance. 

Although there will be no one quite like Hank Williams himself, Alan Jackson's tribute to the late country star is amazing.

Watch the incredible performance below.

And take a listen to Williams' original version below. 

Lyrics Below

I got a feelin' called the blues, oh Lord
Since my baby said goodbye
Lord I don't know what I'll do
All I do is sit and sigh, oh Lord

That last long day she said goodbye
Well lord I thought I would cry
She'll do me, she'll do you
She's got that kind of lovin'

Lord I love to hear her when she calls me sweet da-a-addy
Such a beautiful dream
I hate to think it's all over
I've lost my heart it seems

I've grown so used to you somehow
Well I'm nobody's sugar daddy now
And I'm lo-o-onesome
I got the lovesick blues

Well I'm in love I'm in love with a beautiful gal
That's what's the matter with me
Well I'm in love I'm in love with a beautiful gal
But she don't care about me

Lord I tried and tried, to keep her satisfied
But she just wouldn't stay
So now that she is leavin'
This is all I can say

I got a feelin' called the blues, oh Lord
Since my baby said goodbye
Lord I don't know what I'll do
All I do is sit and sigh, oh Lord

That last long day she said goodbye
Well Lord I thought I would cry
She'll do me, she'll do you
She's got that kind of lovin'

Lord I love to hear her when she calls me sweet da-a-addy
Such a beautiful dream
I hate to think it all over
I've lost my heart it seems

I've grown so used to you somehow
Lord I'm nobody's sugar daddy now
And I'm lo-o-onesome
I got the lovesick blues
