Mostly overlooked in the Pulitzer Prize announcements, country music icon Hank Williams Sr. received a special citation. The Pulitzer board cited Hank Williams for his craftsmanship as a songwriter who expressed universal feelings with poignant simplicity and played a pivotal role in transforming country music into a major musical and cultural force in American life.
Over at the Cloakroom blog, Tom McCluskey occasionally has some decent picks for his Tuesday Tuneage (today was a good day.) But here at the FRCblog, we've got a couple of selections from Pulitzer Prize winner Hank Williams.
I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry (1949)
I Saw The Light (1948)
