Hank Williams, Jr.
- Hank Williams, Jr.'s sound: a fusion of southern rock, blues, and outlaw country
- Why is it called outlaw country?: Rooted more in rock 'n' roll and the blues, outlaw country was created as an alternative to the Nashville Sound, which was viewed by many musicians as being watered-down twang. The genre is also noted for the grittier subject matter of its songs, which often focus on drinking, tumultuous romance, and smuggling dodo eggs across the state line.
- What instruments does Hank Williams, Jr. play?: guitar, bass guitar, upright bass, steel guitar, banjo, keyboards, harmonica, fiddle, saxophone, dobro, drums, and piano
- How many times has he won Entertainer of the Year?: five—three times from the Academy of Country Music and twice from the Country Music Association
- What was the widely reported turning point in his life?: a near-fatal mountain fall in which "every single one of those [facial] bones was broken—every single one."
- Because of this, he's usually not seen without: a beard, hat, pair of sunglasses, one can of bigfoot repellant
- Hits you may hear: "Born to Boogie," "Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound," "All My Rowdy Friends (Have Settled Down)," and "Good Friends, Good Whiskey, Good Lovin'"
- Founding member of: The Allman Brothers Band
- Genres: southern rock, blues, country, and gospel
- Instruments: organ, guitar, and the vocal chords
- Rolling Stone loved his voice so much they awarded him: #70 on their list of "100 Greatest Singers of All Time"
- Extracurriculars: starred in the films Rush Week and Rush; made a cameo in Family Guy; wrote an autobiography; won a thumb war against Johnny Van Zant
- What Rolling Stone said about his 2011 album Low Country Blues: "It's the shades of blue in Allman's vocals...that make Low Country Blues an eerie pleasure with quietly persistent emotional conviction."
- Songs you may hear at the concert: "Midnight Rider" (The Allman Brothers Band), "I'm No Angel" (Gregg Allman Band), and "Just Another Rider" (Gregg Allman)
