“As a concert, Hank, Jr. brought the Hank the crowd paid to see… the hat and shades, the beer-burp smile, the guitar strap on the wrong shoulder, the hits, the Hank, Sr. covers, the drinking songs, lots of spitting. Musically, the show was defined by loud blues-based country-rock, even when he was playing his daddy’s songs,” Riverfront Times shares.
