Hiram "Hank" Williams was an American singer-songwriter. He is regarded as one of the most significant and influential American singers and songwriters of the 20th century. Williams recorded 55 singles that reached the top 10 of the Billboard Country & Western Best Sellers chart, five of which were released posthumously, and 12 of which reached No.1.
Years of back pain, alcoholism, and prescription drug abuse severely compromised Williams' health, and at the age of 29, Williams suffered from heart failure and died suddenly in the back seat of a car near Oak Hill, West Virginia, en route to a concert in Canton, Ohio, on New Year's Day 1953. Despite his relatively brief career, he is one of the most celebrated and influential musicians of the 20th century, especially in country music. Many artists have covered his songs and he has influenced Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, and the Rolling Stones, among others. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1961, the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1970, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987, the Native American Music Awards Hall of Fame in 1999, and gained a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 2010 he was awarded a posthumous Pulitzer Prize Special Citation for his "craftsmanship as a songwriter who expressed universal feelings with poignant simplicity and played a pivotal role in transforming country music into a major musical and cultural force in American life."

By age twelve, William Orville “Lefty” Frizzell—who received his lifelong nickname after decking a schoolmate with a left hook—had resolved to be a professional singer. Captivated by Jimmie Rodgers’s yodel, young Lefty began performing when he was still in middle school.

“Always Late (with Your Kisses),” which opens with Curly Chalker's ascending steel guitar and spent twelve weeks at #1, is perhaps the definitive example of the artist’s revolutionary vocal technique: Frizzell leans into his multisyllabic delivery of the words “always late,” demonstrating the intimate, vowel-bending style for which he is known.

Described by Merle Haggard as “the most unique thing that ever happened to country music,” Frizzell has influenced countless recording artists in the years since he burst to stardom in 1950. George Jones, Roy Orbison, George Strait, Randy Travis, and Keith Whitley have all noted their debt to him.

By the time he was 15, Tejano music pioneer Joe “Little Joe” DeLeón Hernández had taken a stance to pick the guitar instead of cotton. He was amazed to make $5 on his first paying gig — he would have had to pick 500 pounds of cotton to earn that — and he never looked back.

More than 62 years later, "the King of Brown sound" received the National Heritage Fellowship Award from the National Endowment of the Arts, the highest national award that honors the artistic genius of traditional artists.

Little Joe is credited with putting Tejano, or Tex-Mex, music on the map. It’s a pioneering Chicano sound that's an up-tempo hybrid of the many genres he grew up hearing in both Spanish and English: Mexican conjunto norteño, country, blues, rock, big band, cumbia, merengue and more.

No need to say Rest In Peace. Jimmy lived in peace. He wrote about his way of life with humor and poetic sensitivity. I modeled my music about the Cowboy Way of Life around Jimmy’s philosophy. Write and sing about the life you live. Keep it authentic. Write your own script,live it and create art inspired by that. Take plenty of time to live the life you sing about.

It's hard to put a finger on it, but there is something just so soothing about the song, The Weight, by the rock band the Band.
