It's gotta kinda suck to live in the shadow of your super-famous grandpa, and your only-kinda-famous father—people constantly comparing, debating, critiquing your every last little similarity or difference. Really, the only thing you can do is say, "fuck it" and blaze your own trail. If you try to compare Hank III to 1940s Hank Williams Sr., you will be sorely disappointed. If you're open to mixing up traditional country with an occasional speed-metal riff, then Hank III will make you very happy. Ghost to a Ghost/Gutter Town, a double album Hank III released this month alongside two other new albums, features guest appearances by Tom Waits and Les Claypool and a song called "Cunt of a Bitch." Oh, the Grand Ole Opry it ain't. KELLY O
