The Ride by David Allan Coe, and Hank Williams You Wrote My Life by Moe Bandy were both awesome

Bobby Joe Springfield did "Hank Drank."

Leonard Cohen mentions Hank in "Tower of Song."

Think Paul Westerberg has mentioned Hank in lyrics several times over the years.

Matt Johnson (The The) did an entire album of jacked-up Hank songs that garners my highest recommendation.

Then there was that Lyle Lovett song that has the great lyric comparing Hank Williams to Neal Armstrong. "Here I Am" maybe?

Oh my goodness:

Are you sure Hank done it this way - Waylon Jennings (R.I.P.)

The Conversation - Hank Jr. & Waylon Jennings (R.I.P.)

If you don't like Hank Williams (you can kiss my $#@) - Kris Kristofferson/Hank Jr.

Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes - George Jones (mentions Hank)

Hank Williams Guitar - Freddy Hart

A Fifth of Hank - ?? (I forget)

That's all I can think of right now.

For what it's worth, one of Ronnie Milsap's later songs, Nashville Moon, mentions Williams. The song didn't get much press because Milsap was considered old and washed up by the early 1990's, but its a helluva song. Now that I think about it, Milsap never had a bad song. He can still entertain and still has that classic voice. Ronnie's the man. (Right up there with Ric Flair in my book!) Ok, I'm done now.

Couldn't agree more with you about Milsap! The man has a golden voice. Just amazing. It's a shame he, like so many others, have been forced off the charts because they are older than the cast of "Friends."

BTW Robe Boy, thanks for all your help on that other matter, from that other board. I haven't used it, but I may at some point.

Best,
Ben Johnson

Ben,
Milsap is the man in my book. It is such a shame no one will play his stuff anymore. The thing is, he STILL has the voice and the talent. I have his newest release, the 40 Number One Hits, and the last two singles: :"Time Love and Money" and "Livin on Love" are new/modern songs and still kick @$$!!!

I called a local radio station the other day requesting his newest stuff (because I understand if they don't won't to play to older ones because it won't appeal and sadly most wouldn't care anyway)and they didn't even it in the station.

Milsap can still hang in there with the mondern young punks and cut one heck of a song. To me, consistency in a cutthroat business and longevitiy like Milsap has had consistitue "Legendary" status.

BTW, glad to help in you that other matter. Take care of yourself and best of Luck.

I thought this was songs by Hank Williams and I was going to say that "Your Cheatin' Heart" discribed Dusty, but never mind this is the wrong answer.

It was Lyle Lovett's song, as Richard pointed out above. The cheeseburger appears only once in the song, as it is probably devoured soon after.

No. We ate together only once.
