Shelton Hank Williams, known as Hank 3 (born December 12, 1972), is the grandson of country music legend Hank Williams and the son of Hank Williams Jr. In addition to his honky tonk recordings, Williams' style alternates between punk and metal. He is the principal member of the punk metal band Assjack, the drummer for the Southern hardcore punk band Arson Anthem, and was the bassist for Pantera singer Phil Anselmo's band Superjoint Ritual. Williams' live shows typically employ a country music set featuring fiddle player Adam McOwen and slide guitar player Andy Gibson, followed by a hellbilly set and then an Assjack set. He plays both the country and the psychobilly with his “Damn Band.”...
