Rather than hide from his musical legacy, the grandson of Hank Williams spends most of his second album wholeheartedly embracing grandpa's formidable work. While all the songs on LOVESICK, BROKE & DRIFTIN' are self-penned, Hank III and producer Joe Funderburk go out of their way to painstakingly emulate the sound of vintage Hank Williams recordings; instrumentation, arrangements, recording equipment, the whole nine yards. Naturally, there's no way the young Hank can approach his grandfather's songwriting mastery (neither can anyone else, and he'd be a fool to try), but the voice is eerily similar to that of the country icon, and Hank III knows just how to employ it for maximum chill factor. Here and there, Williams's rock & roll roots peek out just a bit, but for the most part, this is a sincere musical love letter to the original honky-tonk style and it's foremost practitioner.
