Hank Williams, Jr.
- 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.

- 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’”
- Who was the senior to Hank Williams’ 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”
