Cold, Cold Heart

We made it through Christmas and now it’s on to a week of not knowing what day of the week it is.  (I always lose track of what day it is during the holidays) 

I slept til 10:00 today, which reminds me of why I don’t like to sleep late: It leaves me feeling hungover for the rest of the day. 

So, with that thought in mind, and since it’s Feel Good Friday (It IS Friday, isn’t it?) let’s all be hungover with someone who certainly knew what it was like to be hungover…Hank Williams, Sr.

Keep in mind while watching this, that Hank, Sr. was only 28 years old when it was filmed in 1952 and that by the time New Year’s Day of 1953 rolled around, he was gone. Unbelievable. 

Also unbelievable in this clip was the vocal ability of 19 year old Anita Carter…sheesh. Also pretty cool to see Roy Acuff in his late 40’s.
