Hank Williams III wrote about his ten picks for 'Essential Country Artists' on music-techie site MusicRadar, and in at #5 is none other than "The Train" himself Wayne Hancock!
HW3 says of Wayne: "The only other guy who has more Hank Williams in him than me is Wayne "The Train" Hancock...Very few people can be real purists, but Wayne is a purist all the way."
Others on the list include Waylon Jennings, Johnny Paycheck, David Allen Coe, George Jones, and of course, Hank3's grandpop.
Speaking of Mr. Hancock, we hear he's doing loads better after his motorcycle spill, "gettin' around fairly well." You can still help support his recovery by donating via firstname.lastname@example.org
