Hank King Williams (September 17, 1923 – January 1, 1953) was an American singer, guitarist, and songwriter who has also become an icon of country music and rock and roll, and was one of the most influential musicians and songwriters of the 20th century. A leading exponent of the honky tonk style, he had numerous hit records, and his charismatic performances and succinct compositions increased his fame. His songbook is one of the backbones of country music, and several of his songs are pop standards as well. He has been covered in a range of pop, gospel, blues and rock styles. His premature death at the age of twenty-nine helped fuel his legend. His son Hank Williams, Jr. (Bocephus), his daughter Jett Williams, and his grandchildren Hank Williams III, Holly Williams, and Hilary Williams are also professional singers.
