ISBN 1617130966. 5.75x8.75 inches.

Covering three generations of Hank Williams, Family Tradition is both unique and vast in scope. Beginning in the present day with Hank III – who gave the author unprecedented access – and time-traveling across the years, Susan Masino examines just what kind of rebel mojo inspired this crazed family of country music, from Hank Sr., often regarded as one of the most influential of American musicians; to Hank Jr.; to this year's model, Hank III, who has somehow found a way to reconcile his legacy's deep-rooted twang and high-lonesome sound with particularly searing strains of punk and heavy metal, launching an all-out war with traditional Nashville in the process.
