New Hank Williams, Sr Surfaces


Hank Williams – father of Hank, Jr. and Jett, grandfather of Hank III — and one of the most influential people of country music history, died tragically, January 1, 1953 at the age of 29.

Over the years much of his music has been remastered and reissued. Recently, tapes of some old radio shows he did were found.

On May 20, Omnivore Recordings will issue 24 songs and jingles recorded in Nashville, and last heard generations ago

The release is called The Garden Spot Programs, 1950.

Kirt Webster & Associates

Not heard for 64 years, these tunes performed by Hank were rarely – if ever — heard by anyone other than those listening that day they were recorded.

The CD, digital and LP, will include banter between Hank and those around him and jingles he recorded as well.

The LP’s first pressing will be translucent , red vinyl.

Jett Williams said, “It’s incredible to me that we’re still finding new recordings by my dad — great ones at that. No one even suspected that these recordings existed. We partnered with Omnivore Recordings for this release, and I especially love it that they’re taking my dad back to vinyl.”
