On May 9 th, 1994, on Hank Snow's 80th birthday, I made a 2 hour program on him on Danish Radio. Today on Hank's 109th birthday I listened to the program again. It shows my boundless admiration for his unequalled art, which has remained intact till this very day. The first number by Hank was The Prisoned Cowboy, Hank's very first recording. The last number was the very telling I'm Still Movin' On. The first number , though, was Moonlight and Skies by Jimmie Rodgers, the number which started Hank movin' on.
Loved Hank when I was 15 yrs old to the present.When I don't hurt anymore came out I loved it.At a neighborhood drive in cafe they had the music boxes in each booth.5 cents each song or 6 plays for quarter.I played all 6 for I don't hurt anymore.Soon I heard someone say something about someone getting over a girl friend.I didn't even have a girl friend then. Thanks to you tube we can still listen to Hank.Saw him a couple of times in person. Still love Hank Snow.
I loved Hank Snow. He reminded me of Snow, and Hank from King of the Hill. The colonel did him wrong! He was just as good as Elvis.
Truly a gentleman and very genuine. He had rich voice; it was a wonderful gift. He was truly a strong and courageous soul too. May forever have peace.
Hello I'm just browsing your site . I found it when I looked up Hank Snow on Google. In the late 40's my mom & dad went to a Hank Snow dance in Dt John's NL. When they were there Hank Snow introduced them. That was the first time they met. This is a piece of history for me & my family. Thanks to Hank as I wouldn't be here now if he didn't get them together!
Hank Snow sang Country Western songs, Cowboy songs, Folk Music, songs you could dance to, cry with, laugh with and always remember. My favorite is Fool Such As I. The first song I ever learned to play and sing was Little Buddy. the second was Put My Little Shoes Away. I often play them in my shows. RIP Hank, you were one of the best. RIDE EASY PARD.....Vic
The greatest country singer ever would have been 107 today.
Many great years of listening pleasure thanks for the memories Hank, RIP. My mother's favorite artist, I can't remember a day coming home from Elementary school for lunch, when Hank wasn't on the record player.
for many years i have sang some of the same songs that Hank Snow sung and my mother and her family actually knew Hank when he would visit the Yarmouth area he knew my Mother and my Aunts he used to sit and play his guitar and sing everyone like Hank........Wilf Saulnier
Have been listening to Hank's music for over 65 years . Love his picking on MY NOVA SCOTIA HOME , and THE WISHING WELL SONG . Hank's Gospel album GLORYLAND MARCH is # 1 . Some day soon , I will make it to Liverpool NS , before I MOVE ON !
As a boy, I used to listen to Hank Snow and one of my favorite songs is I've Been Everywhere. I always admired him as a great country singer.
Hank Snow was a real man who had real talent who played and sang real country music. I cannot put it any plainer.
This is from my youtube channel.....Song Mother... This song has deep meaning for me. My Dad used to play it for his mom since the time I was born. He passed away in the early 70's and the song was stuck in my head although I could never find out where it came from. Enter the internet many decades later and I discovered it was written by Hank Snow, a true Canadian Legend. It's really a song about loving and honouring your mother and about not waiting until it's too late...... Especially pertinent during Covid times and with the sad deaths happening at care homes.... This is to my maritime friends especially. Please accept apologies for slight modificaton of lyrics...I hope Hank would approve.
hi folks my name is Wilfred saulnier and my mother knew hank snow when he was a very young man he used to visit her home and family and one said this voice will be something some day see how positive he was and look what he did now everyone knows his name ., were very proud of hanks achievements ......Wilf Saulnier
Hey everyone, I'm a 23 year old from ol Nova Scotia. I taught myself some of his songs. Fool Such As I, is my favorite to play. Been listening to Hank for a good chunk of my life, and found out I am related to Hank somewhat. Someone in my family married into his in Digby or Liverpool (always been a little unsure), back in the 40's. I saw a family tree somewhere once I was shown, and been trying to find it since.
Listening to "Hank sings Jimmie Rodgers songs" - one of my favorites. Also his guitar playing albums with Chet are wonderful - great artist and what a life! Thanks Hank!
Really enjoyed the show this year ,especially Jeff Tooker, and Tony True,Gordie Giles
