The legacy of Hank Williams lives on.

Holly Williams, granddaughter of the late, great Hank Williams embodies her grandfather so well, and we are sure is is extremely proud of her. 

Hank is regarded as one of the most significant and influential singers and songwriters of the 20th century. He recorded 35 singles, five of which were released after his tragic passing in 1953 at the young age of 29.

After his 1949 release of "Lovesick Blues", Hank became a household name and finally got his chance to perform at the Opry. He is the first performer to receive six encores! Later that year, Audrey gave birth to their son, Hank Williams Jr. 

He released many more hit songs in his career like "I Saw The Light", "Your Cheatin' Heart", "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry", "Hey Good Lookin'" and "Cold Cold Heart", just to name a few! 

Williams is missed every day and his legacy lives on through his son, grandson, Hank Williams III, and granddaughter, Holly.

Holly is known for covering her grandfather's hits, and she does it so well.

Take a look at her singing the heartbreaking song "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry".


Below is Hank Williams' original version for your listening pleasure.

Lyrics Below

Hear that lonesome whippoorwill
He sounds too blue to fly
The midnight train is whining low
I'm so lonesome I could cry

I've never seen a night so long
When time goes crawling by
The moon just went behind the clouds
To hide its face and cry

Did you ever see a robin weep
When leaves begin to die?
Like me, he's lost the will to live
I'm so lonesome I could cry

The silence of a falling star
Lights up a purple sky
And as I wonder where you are
I'm so lonesome I could cry
