hankwilliams1The Hank Williams estate, overseen by his children Jett Williams and Hank Williams, Jr., is making over 200 live performance recordings directly available to movie houses, television production companies, and advertising agencies, where before these rare live recordings had never been accessible for licensing directly from the Estate.

“After years of litigation and tribulation, we can now make these recordings available directly from the Hank Williams Estate, as well as make a decision in a heartbeat,” adds Keith Adkinson, lawyer for the Hank Williams Estate. “This will only allow for a little more Hank out in the entertainment world.”

“I am honored to join my brother Hank Williams, Jr. in making available these original recordings of our dad for multi-media use,” says Jett Williams. “Many experts have said they are better than the MGM masters. You decide–but we can carry on the legacy of my dad with pride.”

“Daddy’s music has lasted decades and is being discovered by a new generation of fans. Not only did he influence country artists, but he also crossed over to influence rock artists,” says Hank Williams Jr. “Today, the Williams legacy continues to endure with the release of these recordings for movies, commercials, documentaries, among others things.”

143 songs from the 1951 radio shows by “Mother’s Best Flour Company” are available, along with 49 other songs, including:
