It’s safe to say that the late and legendary Hank Williams Sr. left a mark on his son, Hank Williams Jr. – a musical mark, that is.

And, it turns out the same thing goes for his grandson, (Hank Jr.’s kid) Hank III.

Though Hank III is the child of the burly bearded “Family Tradition” singer, he bares a strong resemblance to his granddaddy.

In this clip, Hank III is shown performing Hank Sr.’s song, “My Sweet Love Ain’t Around.” For his performance, he dons his grandfather’s signature suit and tie, which fits perfectly on his tall, lanky figure. Aside from his appearance, his vocals practically match his grandpa’s, too!


“Paying a little respect to old hiram Hank Williams today,” he says before wailing out the classic tune, “so here we go.”

Then, backed by a fiddle and steel guitar player, the young prodigy leans into the vintage microphone and delivers the 1940s song lyrics. Yep! We’re sure old Hank would’ve done it that way!

According to Hank III’s Facebook page, the performance took place in 2010 on the set of The Marty Stuart Show. He also performed “Howlin’ At The Moon,” “Pictures From Life’s Other Side,” and “Hillbilly Fever.”
