Vince Gill, Alan Jackson and More Help Finish Lost Hank Williams Songs on New Project
Vince Gill, Alan Jackson and Patty Loveless are among the stars contributing songs to the multi-artist compilation, Hank Williams: The Lost Notebooks, now in stores. Bob Dylan spearheaded the project to find artists to finish incomplete Hank Williams, Sr. lyrics, and Alan Jackson contributed the album’s first track “You’ve Been Lonesome, Too.”
Vince and his pal Rodney Crowell collaborated on the song “I Hope You Shed a Million Tears.” At first, Vince was a little intimidated by the prospect of working on the project, but having Rodney work with him made it fun. Vince and Rodney’s song also features the Hank Williams’ late steel guitar player Don Helms on his last recording before he died in 2008. Norah Jones, Sheryl Crow, Merle Haggard, Jack White and Holly Williams are among the other artists on the Hank Williams: The Lost Notebooks project.
