AllMusic Review by

Tribute to Hank Williams gathers 25 tracks either penned by or about the life and death of the legendary Drifting Cowboy. Unfortunately, this compilation contains a lot of filler and lackluster renditions of Williams' songs. For instance: Delbert Barker's versions of "Why Don't You Love Me," "Cold Cold Heart," "I Don't Care," and "Lovesick Blues" don't stray far from the originals. Why spend the cash on this disc when Williams' definitive recordings are so easily accessible? The tribute songs by Ferlin Huskey "Hank's Song," and Hawkshaw Hawkins "The Life Story of Hank Williams," are decent, but that's not enough to recommended this disc to anyone but rabid Hank Williams devotees.
