Hank Williams Box Set Gets Grammy Nomination

Posted by Christina Forte on 12/06/2010
A Hank Williams box set, titled Hank Williams: The Complete Mother Best Recordings …. Plus!, received a Grammy nominated for Best Historical Album. The set is a career-spanning collection containing many of the Country legend's most-loved songs and unforgetable moments. It contains 15 audio discs, as well as a bonus DVD and a 108-page book written by respected music writer and Hank Williams historian, Colin Escott, along with an introduction by Williams' son, Hank Williams, Jr., and afterword by daughter Jett Williams.
“It is both humbling and so very rewarding to have my daddy nominated by the Grammy Awards for Best Historical Album,” said Jett. "The nomination alone, almost 60 years after his death, proves the timelessness of his awesome talent. All the nominees are winners but we are sure proud to have this labor of love among them. What a journey from his red clay ‘Bama origins to a Hollywood Grammy nomination. He would be so proud. I know we are.”

The 2011 Grammy’s will air live on Feb. 13 in Los Angeles at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
