PALEFACE Video – Hank Williams From His Grave
PALEFACE released a brand new live video “Hank Williams From His Grave” on Sept. 17th, the day of Hank Williams’ Birthday. The song was written by PALEFACE and the original version of the song was a track on Paleface’s self titled 1991 full length major label debut on Polydor Records.
“That video is so poignant, I have goosebumps as I write this. Man. It is about destiny. It is such a wise way to look at the Hank Williams life. Pain ran through Hank’s lyrics and his voice, like they were the foundation of everything he did. Listening to this song, your reminded that Hank Williams was aware of his own mortality almost every waking minute. The fact that the last song he wrote was “I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive,” exemplifies this, and just gives you chills. And then how perfect was it that a train came rolling by the cemetery right in the middle of the song, but then left quickly, almost to pay tribute, but to not interrupt the moment. There was something American Gothic and soulful about that performance, and the life of Hank Williams” Kyle Coroneos, Saving Country Music
