Great Philosophers of the 20th Century #12: Hank Snow


Tonight, sweetheart, as I kneel here alone beside you
And my tears stain the flowers on your grave,
In deep regret I think of the heart that I have wounded
Of the sorrow, and grief, and the life I could have saved.

One of the greats!

No kidding...he helped modernize country for the masses with I'm Moving On (hey, the Stones covered it, Snow must have been doing something right) and he was the first major artist to promote Elvis Presley (even if Col. Tom stole the Pelvis right from under Snow's nose).

And today, a performer with those looks and that voice couldn't get near a mile of a recording studio. For shame, for shame...
