Biography,Early life and careerWilliams was born on May 26, 1949 in Shreveport, Louisiana. His father nicknamed him Bocephus (after Grand Ole Opry comedian Rod Brasfields ventriloquist dummy). After his fathers untimely death in 1953, he was raised by his mother, Audrey Williams. While he was a child, a number of contemporary musicians visited his family, who influenced and taught him various music instruments and styles. Among these figures of influence were Johnny Cash, Fats Domino, Earl Scruggs, Lightnin Hopkins, and Jerry Lee Lewis. Williams first stepped on the stage and sang his fathers songs when he was eight years old. In 1964, he made his recording debut with Long Gone Lonesome Blues, one of his fathers many classic songs.Williams provided the singing voice of his father in the 1964 film Your Cheatin Heart. He also recorded an album of duets with recordings of his father.A change in appearance and musical directionAlthough Williamss recordings earned him numerous country hits throughout the 1960s and early 1970s with his role as a Hank Williams impersonator, he became disillusioned and severed ties with his mother.By the mid-1970s Williams began to pursue a musical direction that would eventually make him a superstar.[citation needed] While recording a series of moderately successful songs, Williams began a heavy pattern of both drug and alcohol abuse. Upon moving to Alabama, in an attempt to refocus both his creative energy and his troubled personal life, Williams began playing music with Southern rock musicians including Waylon Jennings, Toy Caldwell, and Charlie Daniels. Hank Williams Jr. and Friends (1975), often considered his watershed album was the product of these then-groundbreaking collaborations. In 1977 Williams recorded and released One Night Stands and The New South, and worked closely with his old friend Waylon Jennings on the album Once and For All.On August 8, 1975 Williams was nearly killed in a mountain-climbing accident. While he was climbing Ajax Peak in Montana, the snow beneath him collapsed and he fell almost 500 feet onto rock. He suffered multiple skull and facial fractures. The incident was chronicled in the semi-autobiographical, made-for-television film Living Proof: The Hank Williams Jr. Story. He spent two years in recovery, had to have several reconstructive surgeries and had to learn to talk and sing again. To hide the scars and the disfigurement from the accident, Williams grew a beard and began wearing sunglasses and either a cowboy hat or baseball cap. The beard, hat, and sunglasses have since become his signature look, and he is rarely seen without them.Acceptance into the country music establishmentThis section of a Biography, of a living person needs additional citations for verification.
