Are You Sure Hank Done it This Way...

On our recent tour of the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville there was a big exhibit on the way Hank exactly did it. What I learned was that as much as I like listening and playing his songs I feel kind of like you guys that enjoy reading this blog, you don't want either composer coming over to your house.

Here's a display, four mounted fox squirrels, said to be shot by Hank, his single shot shot gun was on display and taken to a taxidermist and posed at Hank's request like a country band, playing bass, fiddle, steel and guitar. Maybe this is what Hank though about his sidemen. I surely have thought the same thing on occasion about folks I played with. Of course present collaborators are excused, I'd marry you guys if that kind of thing was ever ok for fellows in a country band to do.

One of Hank's suits, from the days when it was ok to dress like you were with the band. Actually it's quite a subdued outfit compared to the Nudie designed suits that Porter Wagoner, who really knew how to dress wore to his gigs.
