Listen To Jack White Sing An Unrecorded Hank Williams Song
When Hank died at 29 he left behind a notebook of unrecorded songs. A new project has modern artists doing their versions of those songs, and the line up includes Bob Dylan and Sheryl Crow. The line-up isn't hugely inspiring, honestly, but Jack White has tackled a song and it's pretty great. White brings his own voice to Hank's style, and the backing steel guitar is just gorgeous. What's cool is that this is so identifiably a Hank Williams song, and White does it serious justice.
You can listen to the song here at Rolling Stone.
