Country singer and songwriter Rodney Crowell never met Hank Williams, but he knows very well how lives were changed by one of country music's greatest songwriters. Crowell's father was one of them.
"The songs I'll pick to sing, the way I'll play guitar, all of it, can be traced back to 1955 and a three-room, shotgun slave shack in the third ward of east Houston, where, for endless hours, he used to sit on the edge of the bed, eyes closed and, with a beat-up Gibson J-45, interpret his idols' (and therefore mine) entire repertoire," Crowell wrote in an email to The Associated Press. "After all, I am J W Crowell's son."
There are moments of great humor and poignancy and Crowell says in the end it's a triumphant love story.
