Daughter's Musical Education - Letter H


Hank Williams - 20th Century Masters: Millennium Collection

Letter H and I are both very challenging to come up with music simply due to the limited full albums that I have for artists starting with those letters.

In preparing this blog post, did some reading on Hank Williams, turns out his birthday was September 17th, the day I happened to play this album in the car.
