    Check out this great performance by Bocephus. It's a medley of some of Hank Williams Srs finest songs. You win again is my personal favourite country ballad.

    Hank Williams Jr Medley of Hank Sr songs

    One of my favorites, a Billy Joel tune that Garth remade and made it his own (in my honest opinion)

    Garth Brooks - Shameless



    Unfortunately, this isn't the original release from the early 90's. It's close, but not quite the same. I'm not sure if he remade it, or if one of the GH's in later years edited the music a bit. *shrug*

    It's DAMN hard finding the original on YT.
