Shelton Hank Williams, known as Hank 3 (born December 12, 1972), is an American country, punk and metal musician. The grandson of country legend Hank Williams and the son of Hank Williams Jr., he is one of the most prominent musicians to play neotraditional country in a country music market dominated by pop country.
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 the bassist for Pantera singer Phil Anselmo's band Superjoint Ritual.
Hank III has his own website: http://www.hank3.com/. His grandfather loved a pint and a whisky now and then, Hank III adds smoking pot to the list of tastefull stuff. This is visualized in his rough esthetics.
