NashvilleTN (November 22, 2010) ------ Media accolades continue to pour in for one of the most important music projects of the century, Hank Williams: The Complete Mother’s Best Recordings…..Plus!   The 16-disc box set is from Hank Williams’ 1951 WSM radio shows and gives music fans the first glimpse of who this legendary performer really was and his entertaining personality.  As New York Daily News describes these recordings; It’s hard to decide which is more extraordinary about a new collection of vintage Hank Williams radio shows: the music or the brilliant snapshot they offer of a vanishing moment in American life.
The project is being hailed as the perfect Christmas gift this year, as evidenced from the current and upcoming gift guide inclusions in Time Magazine,Rolling StoneVanity Fair, USA TodayPopMatters.com, Spin MagazineUSA Today and Philadelphia Inquirer. 

“This is the ultimate holiday gift for any serious music fan,” says Time Life Senior Vice President of Retail, Mike Jason. “The recordings are superb, the packaging is one of a kind and we get to hear one of America’s first true music superstars in an intimate and revealing setting playing music he personally selected.”

Other recent and upcoming press coverage includes a Jett Williams interview with Huffington Post, feature in New York Daily News, reviews in MOJO magazinePhiladelphia InquirerPopMatters.com, Time Out New York, 3 reviews on Blogcritics.org and a feature in Cowboys and Indians magazine’sMarch 2011 issue. Also on tap for Hank Williams: The Complete Mother’s Best Recordings…..Plus! will be a Jett Williams appearance on NPR’s World Café on December 12 that will be heard on over 200 radio stations nationwide.  And in 2011, Sirius/XM “T he Roadhouse” will feature an hour long program each week for the full year about the project and the shows will be hosted by Jett Williams.

The recordings are from Williams’ Mother’s Best Flour shows, recorded at the pinnacle of his career. When Williams was planning to be out on tour, he prerecorded his Mother’s Best shows, and 72 of them miraculously survived. Thinking the shows would only reach a small, mostly rural audience in middle Tennessee, Hank was unguarded in both his conversation and choice of songs. Accordingly, we hear him perform many songs he never performed elsewhere, including some from his childhood. The shows contain so many priceless moments, including Williams’ first-ever performances of “Cold, Cold Heart” and “I Can’t Help It (If I’m Still in Love with You)” just days after they were written, as well as many songs he never recorded elsewhere such as “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain” and “On Top of Old Smoky.”

Hank Williams Complete Mother Best Recordings….Plus! played a part in Williams posthumously receiving a Pulitzer Prize Special Citation in May from Columbia UniversityThe Pulitzer committee listened to the Mother’s Best recordings and awarded Williams the citation to honor 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.

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when...

But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E.
