ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Heart of Texas Records is pleased to announce the release of “Hank Thompson and Friends”.

Back in 1996, Hank Thompson had the idea of pairing himself with various entertainers that he admired. He reached out to fellow recording artists George Jones, Vince Gill, Brooks and Dunn, Marty Stuart, Tanya Tucker, Kitty Wells, Junio Brown, David Ball, Lyle Lovett, Delaney & Bonnie and Bekka Bramlett to create the “Hank Thompson and Friends” project.

Thompson chose some of his past hits including “Six Pack To Go” “Sobering Up” “Green Light” “I’ll Still Be Here Tomorrow” and “Total Stanger” along with some new material including “Gotta Sell Them Chickens” “Get The Hell Out Of Dodge” and “Hey Hank, Hey George” to include on the album. The production and song selection was outstanding, but the project never got the attention that it truly deserved.

Partnering with Ray and Ann Thompson Womack, Heart of Texas Records remastered the original songs plus added two lost tracks from that session including “Been Down That Road” with Joe Diffie and a solo track by Thompson titled “The Bluest Rose In Texas Tonight.”

“We were so excited when the Womack’s provided us two lost and never heard before tracks that did not make the original album,” Tracy Pitcox said. “It is so exciting having new Hank Thompson material today. We feel very honored to help keep the Hank Thompson Legacy alive.”

One of the most enduring tracks on the project is the teaming up of Thompson with Kitty Wells and Tanya Tucker for “The Wild Side Of Life/It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels.” It was Thompson’s song “Wild Side of Life” that spawned Wells’ recording of “It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels” in 1952 and created the first major female artist in the industry.

“We are so pleased with the re-release of ‘Hank Thompson and Friends’,” Ray Womack said. “It is our goal to keep Hank’s music available to his old fans while gaining new fans as well.”
