Damn, I'm excited!

I got a new CD in the mail today, "Lovesick, Broke & Driftin'" by Hank WIlliams III.
Damn, Hank III sounds just like his granddaddy and except for the tattoos and long hair, he looks like him too.
Take a listen at him here:

I first saw him on "The Wild & Wonderful Whites of West Virginia", a documentary on Jesco Whites' family (Straight up White Trash, God bless 'em all) and was shocked on the resemblance between him and Hank Sr.
So the other day I went to http://www.half.com/ and picked up a CD for a couple of bucks and played it while I did housework and danced around the house.
Hank III plays Hank Sr type of music but he also plays what he describes as "hellbilly" and punk country. Not sure if I'll enjoy the punk shit but it sounds like the hellbilly I've seen on youtube is right up my alley.

By the way, if you get a chance check out the Jesco White documentary that I mentioned. It kicks ass. It's available on Netflicks, both streaming video and DVD.
Have lots of beer on hand.........
