The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams

I heard Terry Gross do a bit on "The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams" on Fresh Air sometime last month and meant to look into it. She played a song sung by Holly Williams, Hank Williams Sr.'s grand-daughter. Holly, like all of the other artists, set a tune of her making to the lyrics of an unreleased Hank Williams song. The result is a beautifully tragic hymn that I keep going back to.
