Randall Hank Williams, meglio conosciuto come Hank Williams Jr. (26 maggio 1949), è un cantautore statunitense di musica country.

Biografia[modifica | modifica wikitesto]

Figlio della celebre leggenda del country Hank Williams[1], il suo stile musicale è spesso considerato una fusione di Southern rock, blues e country tradizionale[1].

Iniziò la sua carriera qualche anno dopo la morte del padre, seguendone le orme[2]. Ottenne i primi successi reinterpretando alcune canzoni scritte dal padre, come le celebri Your Cheatin' Heart e Long Gone Lonesome Blues[2].
