Plot Summary: A biopic of the life of country music icon Hank Williams, based on the book "Hank Williams: The Biography," by Colin Escott. Filmmakers have cooperation with the Hank Williams estate that gives the production use of his most memorable recordings.

Williams ranks high among the most influential country music singer-songwriters, and he lived a life as hard as any character in a country song. After growing up dirt poor in Alabama during the Depression, Williams skyrocketed to fame with 11 No. 1 hits, including classics "Cold, Cold Heart," "Your Cheatin' Heart" and "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry."

Williams also suffered from spina bifida, which led him to turn to alcohol and morphine for pain relief. Haunted by demons and bad habits, Williams died in 1953 at age 29.
