Music fans around the world have learned of the passing of George Jones. It is indeed sad that Country Music has lost another one of our best artists. Also, it is a tragedy that the quality and standards of today's country music is nothing like the original classic country music of the 40's, 50's and 60's. The so-called singers today don't know the true meaning of country music so they obviously can't sing the real country songs! Every country music fan has his or her own "favorites" and in my opinion, Hank Snow is the absolute greatest country singer of all time! He was multi-talented with his variety of songs, guitar playing and song writing. No other CW singer could measure up to Hank's skills. His music will live forever thanks to his countless fans.
I went to buy a record once called "Gotta travel On" By mistake I bought Hank's "I'm Movin On". What a great mistake. I have been a lifelong fan of Hank's ever since and have been fortunate to see him perform many times in Toronto and at the Grand Ole Opry. He was absolutely the best there ever was.
I was fortunate to see Hank back in the 1960s in Liverpool UK.That was a truly magical experience. funny thing is.. Dressed in a regular suit and tie,Willie Nelson was the support act.
December 20, 1999, marks the 13th anniversary of Hank's passing. I've been a Hank Snow fan for nearly 60 years! His singing and guitar playing are the best in the Country Music Industry. He was multi-talented and had an outstanding voice. He could perform any type of song, and his guitar playing was outstanding. His success with "I'm Movin' On" is legend, staying on the Billboard hit parade longer than any other song in Country Music history. We are fortunate we can enjoy Hank's music via his 78, 45 33-1/3 LP records, tapes, CD's and videos. His unique music will live on thanks to his loyal fans.
MY PARENTS HAD OFTEN MENTIONED HANK AS HE EVEN GOT AS FAR AWAY AS TO COME UP(OR DOWN?) TO SPRINGHILL TO PLAY AT A HOUSE PARTY. TRAVELLING WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN EASY IN THOSE DAYS, BUT I AM SO GLAD I FOUND THE WEB SITE TO READ ALL ABOUT HIM. HE INDEED WAS A VERY TALENTED MAN.
I idolize Hank Snow. There isn't much I don't know about him. I,too, came from a troubled childhood due to abuse at home so I can readily relate to Hank. I have only seen him in person once and it is a highlight of my life. I spent 22 years in the U.S. military and my extensive collection of Hank's records (on 45 RPM's) saw me through thick and thin.I also donated a home made movie film of him and Ernest Tubb when they appeared in Lewiston, Me.many years ago. In 2004 my wife and I visited the Hank Snow Music Center where I donated my entire collection of records to the Center. I already know all the words of just about every song he ever sang and I wanted others to experience a great singer. He brought me religion through his songs. He was just like a minister to me. He taught me the pitfalls of life and the joy that could be realized with his magnificent singing. I am nearly 79 and I still get melancholy and the tears can still easily fall when I hear his songs. We lost a great performer when he left us.

I visited the Hank Snow Museum as part of my solo Eastern Canada adventure to celebrate my 65th birthday 10 years ago in 2002 at this very time of the year. I truly enjoyed seeing so many wonderful places in Nova Scotia, especially places like this that I didn't know would just show up en route as I journeyed around your province and then around Nfld. on a 12 day bus tour. Would love to be back east visiting the Maritime Provinces again. As someone else said, every time I happen to hear a Hank Snow tune, my thoughts go back again to that day I happened to spend in the Museum at Liverpool.
Visited the museum back in 2004 and every time I listen to a Hank song I remember that visit. Loved the place and hope to get back there again some time. Keep up the good work! Hank
HE IS NO.I IN MY BOOK. ALONG WITH RAY PRICE AND ERNEST TUBB THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER
Was lucky enough to see Hank on the Opry years ago and always thought of him as the best their ever was.

There are rumours in the family that my grandfather and Mr. Snow were friends and he even attended my grandfathers wedding. Also that they helped get a local radio station going in P.E.I. or Newbrunswick. Is there a way of verifying this....just sheer curiosity. Thanks.
I love this type of country music. I listen to it in my 1961 plymouth fury. I even have country usa 1957,59,61 and ,62 . I added a CD player to the car so I can listen to the CDs in it
my aunt enjoys his music
