* Hank Williams Jr.'s age when he first played the Grand Ole Opry: 11 * 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, keyboard, harmonica, fiddle, saxophone, dobro, drums, 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: beard, hat, pair of sunglasses, can of Bigfoot repellant * Hits you may hear: "Born to Boogie," "Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound," "All My Rowdy Friends (Have Settled Down)," "Good Friends, Good Whiskey, Good Lovin'" * Who was the senior to Hank Williams's junior?: legendary country singer Hank Williams, who was known for his hits "Your Cheatin' Heart," "Hey Good Lookin'," and "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" * Who's the third to Hank Williams's junior?: outlaw country torchbearer Hank Williams III
