Hank Williams III

We gave it a B+

He’s got his grandpappy’s mulish bray and his daddy’s rebel yell. But somewhere between Montgomery and Nashville, Shelton Hank Williams found his own wounded voice and a gift for songcraft, fueled by recklessness (”If the Shoe Fits”) and rejection (”On My Own”). Forgive the self-mythology. Risin’ Outlaw is as goose-bumpy good as Senior coming back from the grave.
