Woof!

Prepare to hear Hank Williams’ voice in every commercial, TV show and movie, ever. Okay, that’s likely an exaggeration, and anyway would that be such a bad thing?

I reckon Hank Jr. doesn’t have the taste and discretion to be choosy about where or how they sell his daddy’s songs, bless his big ol’ bigoted heart. (Jett seems like a nice gal.)

Full story in my blog today at City Pages and link to the longer story at Variety, which provided many of the juicy details.

I gotta admit, I am excited for the possibility this might mean more released recordings (for listening to, not for selling stuff to). Though it would be kind of cool if as they listed the plethora of conditions and side effects you could come down with from taking a penis pill or a rheumatoid arthritis medication, all ending in “or other serious conditions, including death,” they were playing “I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive” in the background.
