I grew up listening to Hank Snow's records. I'll never forget, from the 1960's on, cranking up those scratchy records and listening to his familiar voice and awesome guitar. His music, to this day, brings back some of the happiest memories ever for me.
Prefer his version of "I've been everywhere" over Johnny Cash's. Enjoyed his music while growing up and reading about his life history.
i remember hank, when he came "home". he would stop by my grandmothers house when he was "on the move".i would sleep in the livivng room while he and my grandmother an others would party in the kitchen. hank was not a mean man,nor a pompous man. he loved having a good time. which he did when he visited our little reserve on his "vacations". i would dance for nickles and dimes to his guitar in my grandmothers small kitchen,most of which were provided by hank.there they celebrated life with mustard glasses full of wine and a cigarette in the spokes of a guitar. was alot of fun that i wasnt allowed to talk about. funny how he was just a man back then to a young boy in the 60's but when you look at it now he was a giant of a man.
I saw Hank Snow once while I was a long-haired teenager in the early seventies quite by accident. I had tickets for a Porter Wagoner & Dolly Parton show and they canceled and substituted Hank Snow as the headliner. I didn't know any of Hank's work and wasn't really looking forward to it but the tickets were nonrefundable so my girlfriend and I went. Suffice it to say, he and his band just blew me away with this clean Canadian country/folk music and songs that just cut to the chase. This was a master at work at the peak of his powers. We got to meet him after the show and he signed the back of a scrap of paper I had in my wallet. I wonder what he thought of this long haired kid thanking him for the show and the autograph. That was the one and only time I got to see him, but he sure won me over that night. I'm glad I got to see him that one time. I'll always consider it a musical turning point in life. Thank you, Mr. Snow.
'The Best of Hank Snow' was the first album I ever owned, (1967,age 6). I thought that 'I've Been Everywhere' was about the coolest thing going. I still treasure that record, and while I love MANY styles of music, I am proud to say that Hank Snow was my FIRST favorite singer/picker.

Hank was the man who really turned me on to country music in the early 60's He was above and apart from all other singers, and it is my lifes regret that I was never able to see him perform
I would just like to say hello and to also say that I have been a fan of Hank's for many years going back to the early 1950's.

Hank Snow, Is amazing, and he is my Great Great Great grandfather. I am so proud to say that.
There have been a few great artists. Hank Snow, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, and Marty Robbins. Notice I put Hank at the top? That is where he belongs. I have loved his music, both singing and guitar playing ever since I first heard him. It really gripes me that the American music industry has not given him the recognition he deserves. -Emmit
I first heard Hank Snow in the early sixties when I was 6 yrs. As I was brought up on Country Music through my Father whom played and formed the Opunake Hill Billies listening to the likes of Jim Reeves. I found listening to Hank was touching and musically relaxing,and through Hank I found another singer, Jimmie Rodgers. Hank was a gifted singer and will be missed by millions like myself...
I think mr. snow was the best.
