Hank Williams, Jr. Looks Back on Life-Altering Accident and Album

Just as he released his most sonically adventurous LP to date, the country superstar took a near deadly fall off a mountain.

I was keeping a lot of people employed to feed their families.”

Hank Williams Jr – Tear In My Beer

“The magic is as wide as a smile and as narrow as a wink, loud as laughter and quiet as a tear, tall as a tale and deep as emotion. So strong, it can lift the spirit. So gentle, it can touch the heart. It is the magic that begins the happily ever after.” – Unknown
