A good ‘ole boy from the heart of Alabama, Hank Williams taught himself to play the guitar when he was 8 years old. In 1936, at the age of 13, he formed his own band, the “Drifting Cowboys”.
 
In 1947, Williams moved to Nashville - the recording and broadcasting center of country music. There he introduced the country music world to a style that would later become known as “rockabilly” - a precursor to rock ‘n’ roll blended with a country flair. With hits such as “Move It On Over” and “Honky Tonkin’” he gained instant popularity, and his performances on the “Grand ‘Ole Opry” program, broadcast nationally every Saturday night, catapulted him to stardom.
 
Although Williams’ style changed country and western music forever, his lasting legacy may be his lyrics. He wrote literally hundreds of hits, offering country music some of its most enduring songs, including “Cold, Cold Heart”, “Jambalaya”, and “Ramblin’ Man.” “Your Cheatin’ Heart” has been recorded by at least fifty people. 
 
Today Williams’ son Hank Williams, Jr., also a country singer and composer, carries on his father’s legacy. This stamp also appeared in a booklet honoring other legendary names in country music.
