The first record my dad ever bought me when I was 3 years old was PAVING THE HIGHWAY WITH TEARS. I immediately fell in love with Hank Snow and have been one of his most faithful fans ever since. We have recorded one of Hank's songs. He is my favourite singer to this day. I have seen him perform many times. I rally miss him....I wish we could turn back the time.
Hank was one of the greats, one of the true legends. Many profess to be a legend but few really are. It was a great gift God gave to him, probably to make up for some of the hell he went through as a kid. Thanks, Hank, you made our lives brighter.
I am a HUGE Hank Snow fan. So sad that he is still not around to thrill us with his unique singing style and his wonderful songs- some of which he wrote. I entertain myself by listening to his many early recordings posted on Utube. May the songs of Hank Snow be forever available for future generations to marvel at.
Hank Snow was my Dad's favorite singer. When Dad's health began to decline, he had to go to assisted living and he did not own anything to play music. I decided to load some of Hank Snow's songs onto my iPod so I could take them to let him hear them. He had not heard the songs in over 30 years, so he was tickled to hear them. Dad passed away 3 1/2 years ago. Today I was listening to my iPod and one of Hank Snow's songs randomly started playing. Needless to say it was very emotional. I know no one really cares, but I feel like I am honoring Dad by posting this. Thanks to Hank Snow for entertaining my Dad and being a link between our generations
Again a huge thank you to everyone at the Hank Snow Museum, Hank Snow Tribute show and the musicians that volunteered their time and talents for another great show in 2016...I hope to see you all in 2017.
Our hero would have been 102 today. His wonderful music will live forever.
I remember sitting in toe floor with my daddy listening to Hank in 1944 , just before dad went in the Marines . Grand times
My Grandmother was a big fan!!
Always a Hank Snow fan.
I can remember listening to Hank when I was 5 years old back in the 50's thought his music was great.
Hank,you were a helluva singer. Being 56,I remember hearing you sing "I'm Movin'On"on various country stations,most notably Bill Mack's show on WBAP820 out of Fort Worth. When I hear all this"Bromance"crap as well as"Pretty Boy Hat Acts"and"Fake Bad Asses"on what passes for"Country Radio"today,I can't wait to get on YouTube(tm)and hear you;Merle;Johnny;Willie;Waylon and others who still play real country-the kind you can sit and drink a beer along to!! God Bless You Hank!!May You Rest in Peace Until I Meet You in Country Music Heaven!!
I have been a life long fan of Hank and I have every single recording the man has ever made. What a legend! I have been blind all my life and I am a musician too! I am a piano player and play a lot of Hank Snow's songs. I have gotten several articles published in Sri Lanka in the papers and I am hoping to do a bio on Hank and my love for this great man to soon be published also! I would love to hear from other Hank Snow fans. My email is email@example.com I love music very much especially classic country. I use a computer with a speech capability. I am 30 years old.
Hi: I am 71 and fondly remember hearing Hanks songs on the radio. In my books he is/ was the best of the best. Some time ago I submitted an unrecorded tape that was never recorded for release, It was a radio station interview down east with a short song skit about the road to Mandlay- it was done sometime in the mid to late fourties. I never got a reply if you received it. Also please put larger and better images of the gift shop items. I'm interested in some of them . Eugene Charron
Hank Snow would have been 101 today. His beautiful creaky voice and wonderful melodious guitar can still be heard around the world. I used to think I was the only Hank Snow fan. (Only the number of records sold spoke against it). Lately I've met some people who share my enthusiasm. I would like to share my views with anyone who would care to write. Finn Baerendorff

Today is the 60th anniversary of Elvis performing at Jesuit High School of New Orleans. On an entertainment online site, John DiTirro writes today, "In 1955, Elvis Presley played two shows (7:30pm and 9:30pm) at Jesuit High School in New Orleans, Louisiana. Hank Snow was also on the bill." This is the first I am hearing that Hank Snow was on the bill. I have interviewed a lady who was on the bill as a 14-year old singer, Martha Raye. She mentioned nothing of Hank Snow being on the bill. Can you support the claim that Hank Snow, in fact, was on the bill with Elvis. Thank you.

Born in Phoenix, Ariz in "47, I was 5 years old standing in front of a judge, asking me which of my parents I wanted to live with. During the bitter divorce proceedings, my mother was singing and playing guitar with Marty Robbins in the local honky tonks,during which time he invited her to go "on the road" and perform. She declined his offer, to stay behind and fight for custody of her 2 boys. After she got custody of my younger brother and I, I remember her singing and playing guitar to Hank Williams and Hank Snow, and I would sing along. Shortly thereafter, I remember the 3 of us taking a Greyhound bus back to NYC. When we got off at the Port Authority Building I was wearing a cowboy outfit: Levis,shirt,hat,chaps AND 2 six guns.I WAS THEN READY FOR "the BIG APPLE". Still have a very warm and sentimental feeling for Hank's music and how it helped my mother and I cope with those troubling times. THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES,Hank,love ya. Stevie,as my mother used to call me.
It wasn't until I toured through NS that I realized how big of a legend Hank Snow is. His music is a great inspiration for me and a big part of my show now. Hope to visit sometime.
