About Hank Williams III
It can't be too easy being Hank Williams III and having people expect you to fill two pairs of boots. Luckily, the grandson to the Honky-Tonk legend and son of one of Southern Rock's biggest outlaws has found his own sound and style. Depending on who he's sharing a bill with, Hank III can be seen effortlessly walking a musical tightrope between Old-Time Revival/Honky-Tonk songs and more snot-nosed, bratty Cowpunk songs. In the former, his voice hauntingly croons and cries in a style slightly similar to his late grandfather, but it more closely resembles that of Hank III's contemporary and friend, Wayne Hancock. Hank III also has a side project named Assjack, which Williams describes as "hellbilly danger with and old school punk feel."
