New Year's Day Homage

A Happy New Year to you all
Long suffering readers will know the drill by now and any  newcomers well you will just have to get used to it.

It is a long standing tradition on New Year's Day for CCM to pay homage to two of the greatest artists of all time who both died on this day

Hank Williams died on the 1st of January 1953 aged just 29 and Townes Van Zandt in 1997 aged 52
Two artists who profoundly influenced Country music in their own way. Hank brought it to the world's attention and Townes was influential in inspiring the Americana movement.

I find it inconceivable that there are people out there who don't have any music by them but if you fall into that category you know what to do.
A New Year Resolution that should be easy to keep and one you will not regret.

Hank Williams - Move It On Over

Townes Van Zandt - Tower Song


  1. Yep. That’s how we start a year in these parts. Well done.

  2. All the best for the New Year!

  3. A Happy New Year to you & yours. Thank you for all your fab posts and great music.

  4. A real treat to hear Hank any day of the year!

    Hope you and Mrs. CC enjoyed New Year's Eve (or should I say Hogmanay?)

  5. At least I know who they are by now.

    Happy 2019!

  6. Splendid. 2019 has truly commenced.

  7. All the excuse I need to recommend Almost as blue as Hank Williams by The Panic Brothers.
