This is a detailed account of Hank Williams' life and premature death. The book pays close attention to his chronic back pain, the rocky marriages, the status anxiety, the inferiority complex, the philandering and above all the alcoholism that would eventually kill him. Along the way author Colin Escott also provides an inside look of the music business in the 1940's and 50's, from songwriting to publishing, promotion and performance.
