Thread Name: Hank Williams & plagiarism
Subject: RE: Hank Williams & plagiarism
While Hank was a great songwriter and singer, perhaps the greatest, he didn't write the music notation. He would sing the song strumming his guitar to Fred Rose who would then do the birdtracks. No doubt that Rose refined the words and the air in many instances but it was born in Hank's heart. It was a great partnership!
