Early on, mother Audrey Williams molded her son into a miniature version of his late father, and for 20 years he struggled, uncomfortably, to break the mold. When he finally found his own sound and style, his music sales reached 20 gold albums, six platinum albums and 13 chart-topping albums. He has been selling out massive venues for longer than his father spent on earth. He has done more than honor his father’s legacy—he has extended it, enriched it and elevated it. “My name’s a reminder of a blues man that’s already gone,” he once sang. But the name Hank Williams, Jr. is much more than that.
