Hank Williams III
As the name indicates, Hank Williams III is the third in a line of country music royalty, son of Hank Williams Jr. and grandson to the man they simply called Hank. While Hank III is certainly as much of a hell-raiser as his pop and grandaddy, his style of music owes much more of a debt to the traditional styles of Hank I than the rowdy country-rock of his father. That said, Hank III has a rock-&-roll spirit previously unimaginable in the Williams family. With his band Assjack and side-project Superjoint Ritual (with former Pantera frontman Phil Anselmo), Hank III indulges in hardcore punk and power metal, taking the image of the country outlaw to extreme new levels.
