Father’s Day Gift Guide: THE LAST RIDE (plus the five most-covered HANK WILLIAMS songs)


This article is more than 11 years old and may not have been updated since our last site redesign. It may contain outdated information or could be missing images.

As Father’s Day gets closer, many of my readers are still hunting for a perfect gift for that special Dad in their lives. As I always say – I don’t ask for, nor do I require a gift, but if you must get one – don’t overspend. Movies always make great gifts, and one that’s been on my radar lately is THE LAST RIDE. Touted as “A Story of Hank Williams,” THE LAST RIDE is a telling of the final days of Williams’ life – not a true biopic, so the accuracy has come into question. But, with Henry Thomas (Elliott from E.T.) as Hank Williams, my interest is piqued. With the Blu-ray out now, the folks over at FoxConnect sent over the Top Five Most-Covered HANK WILLIAMS Songs. Curious what they are?


Most-Covered HANK WILLIAMS Songs:
