With a nickname like Bocephus, you have to be something special. The son of country legend, Hank Williams Sr., Randall Hank Williams Jr is just that — special. Born in May of 1949 in Shreveport, La., Hank Jr. is not only a singer-songwriter, but he also plays multiple instruments.

Hank Jr.¬† began his career by following in his famous father’s footsteps; singing his father’s songs and imitating his father’s style. Williams’s was slowly finding¬† his own style and place in the music industry, until his near fatal fall off the side of Ajax Mountain in Montana in 1975.¬† After a long recovery Hank Jr. challenged the country music industry with a blend of country, rock, and blues. Williams enjoyed much success in the 1980s which earned him recognition and popularity in the country music industry.
