May 9: The late Hank Snow was born in 1914
I’ve had about 140 albums released, and I’ve done everything I wanted to do.
I’d always listened to Hank Snow.
~Bob Dylan (to Sam Shepard – Aug 1986)
Canada’s greatest contribution to country music, Hank Snow was famous for his “traveling” songs. It’s no wonder. At age 12 he ran away from his Nova Scotia home and joined the Merchant Marines, working as a cabin boy and laborer for four years.
