HANKS A LOT

by Durwood Haddock

A new release with the unique title HANKS A LOT from a man who has spent all of his adult life in country music as a writer/singer/musician. Durwood Haddock’s career dates back to the golden age of country beginning in l954 and is probably best known for his co-write of the country music standard THERE SHE GOES. In this collection he revisits that era and sings some of his favorite HANK songs first recorded by HANK SNOW, HANK WILLIAMS, HANK THOMPSON & HANK LOCKLIN. No doubt country music purists will recognize them and will most certainly enjoy the musical accompaniment with twin fiddles, crying pedal steel, electric lead and a rhythm section that transports the listener back to the “golden age of country music”.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Veteran singer/songwriter/musician Durwood Haddock whose career dates back to the golden age of country music releases his fifth album with the unique title HANKS A LOT. Durwood reaches back to that golden era in which he most certainly is familiar performs 12 of his favorite HANK songs by HANK WILLIAMS, HANK SNOW, HANK THOMPSON and HANK LOCKLIN. These are songs that Durwood learned when he was barely a teenager and later performed on radio, in honky tonks & dance halls in Texas before he was twenty.
Durwood’s career as a vocalist never reached the brass ring status, but his writing most certainly did. In l954 the first song he wrote with Eddie Miller & recorded on 4 Star Records titled THERE SHE GOES didn’t result in Durwood becoming a house hold name as an artist, but CARL SMITH’S recording, a number three chart the following year in l955, started a whole new career for Durwood as a song writer. Later the song was recorded by PATSY CLINE(There He Goes) and eventually sold in the millions in THE PATSY CLINE COLLECTION in l991. In l980 it was featured in the Oscar winning movie, COAL MINER’S DAUGTHER the life story of Loretta Lynn and later the movie THE HEART IS DECEITFUL ABOVE ALL THINGS starring ASIA ARGENTO & PETER FONDA. To date the song has been recorded over 150 times by various artists including BUDDY GRECO, JERRY WALLACE, SAMMI SMITH, SCISSY SPACEK, K.D. LANG & ERNEST TUBB to name only a few. While THERE SHE GOES has been the more successful song, Durwood has had several others recorded by a stellar cast of country & pop music notables over the past half century,
Be assured, when you put HANKS A LOT on the player, Durwood will take you on a musical trip back to the “Golden Age of Country Music”.
