Hiram "Hank" Williams (September 17, 1923 – January 1, 1953) was an American singer-songwriter. Regarded as one of the most significant and influential American singers and songwriters of the 20th century.


The death of Hank Williams, is still a bit of a mystery. On December 30, 1952, Williams was driving around in his 1952 Cadillac with his stage suits, guitar, and other items he thought would be needed on a short tour through Ohio and West Virginia. Williams picked up Charles Carr, a college freshman Williams had hired to chauffeur him on the tour, and the two drove around Montgomery, Alabama.Carr noticed that Williams was passed out in the back seat. When he checked on him, Williams’ body was unresponsive and becoming rigid; he was dead. It’s unclear what killed Williams, but we do know that he drank often on the tour and had asked his doctor to give him a shot of morphine to help with his back pain.


Williams was friendly with musician Jimmy Dickens. Having told Dickens that Dickens needed a hit record if he was going to become a star, Williams said he'd write it, and penned "Hey Good Lookin'" in only 20 minutes while on a plane with Dickens, Minnie Pearl, and Pearl's husband Henry Cannon. A week later Williams recorded it himself, jokingly telling Dickens, "That song's too good for you!"


He formed the Drifting Cowboys backup band, which was managed by his mother, and dropped out of school to devote his time to his career. The band went through several lineups during Williams' career.
