Hank Williams: The Complete Mother’s Best Recordings…..Plus!
HONORED WITH GRAMMY NOMINATION FOR BEST HISTORICAL ALBUM
“It is both humbling and so very rewarding to have my daddy nominated by the Grammy Awards for Best Historical Album,” says Hank’s daughter, Jett Williams. ‘The nomination alone, almost 60 years after his death, proves the timelessness of his awesome talent. All the nominees are winners but we are sure proud to have this labor of love among them. What a journey from his red clay ‘Bama origins to a Hollywood Grammy nomination. He would be so proud. I know we are.”
“I want to give a big ole thanks to the Grammy voters, as Daddy’s music is a part of music history,” adds Hank Williams, Jr. “These songs are real, they are original and they show why Hank’s music lives on!”
“We are delighted at the Grammy nomination for this unique box set,” says Mike Jason, Senior Vice President of Retail, Time Life and Producer of the Hank Williams box set. “We are especially honored to be a part of presenting a truly 3-dimensional view of a great American artist and icon.”
