A glimpse at Hank Williams Jr.‘s banjo skill is not something you get to see everyday. We are used to the outlaw country singing, sunglasses wearing, bearded cowboy that Hank Jr. has become. But before all that there was this.

A more tailored Hank Jr. playing an impressive cover of  “Foggy Mountain Breakdown”, which is one of the most famous bluegrass songs of all time. “Foggy Mountain Breakdown” was first written and recorded in 1949 by Earl Scruggs, and was used in the 1967 movie classic, Bonnie and Clyde

Most younger fans haven’t ever seen his live banjo playing, and boy, is it a sight to see. Even though playing the banjo is one of his lesser known talents to current fans, it is safe to say that he certainly mastered the art at a very young age. It is so awesome to see such a different side to this country music outlaw! 

Take a look at this rare and impressive performance from Hank Jr. below. We promise y’all will be blown away by his banjo skills!
