Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way?

Once upon a time, country music was really country.

That was good, but it wasn't true country. That was stoner, hippy, Texas-rock country.

This was the real thing.

Hank Williams was the Elvis Presley of country music.

If it ain't twangy and nasally, it ain't country!

A lot of people talk up Hank Jr, but while his stuff is fun his dad was the real deal.

He was original and sincere, and a fantastic musician.

Hank III has some good twangy stuff, just like his grandpa.
