- Artist: Joe Penny

- Release Date:11/2/2004
There are many tribute songs and CDs out there today, but this one is the most unique one offered yet, for several reasons. It is not your run of the mill 'sound like Hank' singing, but an insite on the early years of Hank's life, told by an actual former member of William's band, thru songs that delve into the real legend that he became. Penny leads off with an unusual tale,'HANK LEFT US (in Almost Heaven)' which will have you believing the people were real, near Hank in his final hours. This gripping story takes you on thru the funeral, and a sad ending. Then each song follows with special meaningful introductions, such as never were done before. Near the close of this CD, There is another surprising chapter of Hank's daughter, Jett. A touching end to this story will reach out to so many, when you listen to 'GROWIN' OLD WITHOUT GOD'. These are not old Hank songs, but a way of remembering how good his music was, done in the unforgettable style that he made so famous, and a different way of saying, 'Thank you, Hank'.
