My husband Russ thought Hank was the greatest!! At the age of 10 my husband got his first guitar and started playing all Hank's songs. He became very good at the guitar, though he was an civil engineer by trade. One of his favorite songs was, With This Ring I thee Wed, which he sang and picked for me. My husband is now deceased but I play Hank's songs all the time and think of him. I hope they are playing together up above.
I can't say I really "got" Mr. Snow till the late 90s. He was somewhat before my time, but was one of the first names bandied about re: country music in my native Texas as a young boy in my family circles. Well, about once a year, I get the bug and go Hank Snow crazy. What a talent. What an awesome and inspiring talent. I can't get enough, from his unique way of interpreting Jimmy Rodgers to his latest recordings, Hank was some of country's purest sounds. Forever, Mr. Snow.
Today is December 20, 2011, and it is the 12th anniversary of when Hank passed away in 1999. I have been a fan of Hank's since the 1950's, and without a doubt, he is the greatest country music artist of all time. He will always be loved and missed by his countless fans.
Its unbelievable that he is gone,but I still sing and play his songs ,they will be around for a very long time
I grew up listening to Hank Snow because my grandpa and my dad liked him. He was a great singer and an even greater man. He is missed dearly around the world.
As a child i grew up watching the Grand Old Opera. As i read this story it brought lots of memories.
Hank is one of my all time favorite country music performers. One of the best
Juet got an album in the mail. I met him once in Burlington VT in the late 50's. A great entertainer, guitar player and a nice guy. I am 77 and he brings back some good old memories. Thank you for this web site!!
Hello to one of the all time greats. While watching Bob Ross " The best of the Joy of Painting" He spoke of his admiration for you.. I would also like to say thanks for the good old day of great music and song.
I was born in the mid 40's (the hopeful years) in eastern Nova Scotia and could tell stories which would bring a tear to a glass eye. There were many times when there was nothing on the table but elbows but it seemed, through it all, was the omnipresent Hank Snow music. You were the soundtrack of our youth, sir. May God bless.....
hank was my idol growing up in the 50s .IT was a time of very few cares for a youngster.Sleep well amigo,ADIOS.

There will never, never, NEVER, be any singer or guitar picker as great as Hank Snow. He lives on and on in his wonderful music.
I have been a fan of Hank's since my high school days in the early 50's. Hank has to be counted among the greats in country music
Hi! I saw Hank Snow on stage in Norway 1966, warm up band was Willie Nelson. About 40 years later I meet his son Jimmy in Nashville under cma fest. Hank was agreat singer and guitar player. He was a friend of the norwegian people.
Hank, you were a personal friend and mentor for me during my mid to late teen years, and I wanted to again express my gratitude for your hospitality to my band and me, when we visited your home, and for your influence for us to make our guest appearances at the Opry. You were definitely one of a kind, and you'll always hold a special place in my memories. God bless you. Dan ("The Tennessee Ranger" and his Sunset Ranch Boys
My Dad liked listening to Hank Snows music. I had only heard Hank a few times while he was alive. Now that my Dad Russell Edgar Randolph Sr. has passed there is that connection between my Dad and me and it is through Hank Snows Music. I have listened to Hanks songs and read his Biographies and he was truely a wonderful entertainer. I now see why My Dad liked his music so much. I can relate to the Railroad songs and some of his songs that were hits durning WW2. Thank ya Hank for all the good songs and I know I'll meet you and my Dad in that Golden Yonder.
I grew up listening to Hank Snow along with many other Country Music Stars. Hank was one of my favorites. Loved his voice. I swear he could make a rock shed a tear with some of his very sad songs.
