It pretty much goes without saying that in the world of traditional country music, no one is more revered than the great Hank Williams, which is why it takes a special kind of artist to interpret his songs in the way they so richly deserve to be interpreted. Here, two artists combine their talents to breathe fresh country air into twelve of Williams' greatest hits, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis. The Killer and the Man in Black were both schooled in rock & roll and traditional country, and that education pays off in spades with Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis Sing Hank Williams. Never has Williams' catalog been touched on with more emotion and inspiration.
