Summary
"In his brief life, Hank Williams created one of the defining bodies of American music. Songs such as 'Your cheatin' heart,' 'Hey, good lookin',' and 'Jambalaya' sold millions of records and became the model for virtually all the country music that followed. But by the time of his death at age twenty-nine, Williams had drunk and drugged and philandered his way through two messy marriages and out of his headline spot on the Grand Ole Opry. Even though he was country music's top seller, toward the end he was so famously unreliable that he was lucky to get a booking in a beer hall. Colin Escott's enthralling, definitive biography--now the basis of the major motion picture I Saw the Light--vividly details the singer's stunning rise and his spectacular decline, revealing much that was previously unknown or hidden about the life of this country music legend"--Page 4 of cover
