Randall Hank Williams was born to the legendary Hank Williams and his wife, Audrey Williams, on May 26, 1949. He is known to us as Hank Williams Jr, and was given the nickname “Bocephus” by his father. Audrey had a daughter, Lycrecia, in 1941 from her first marriage.

Hank Williams passed away on January 1, 1953 – a few months before Hank Jr.’s fourth birthday.

By the time of his death, Audrey and Hank were divorced but after her death in 1975, she was buried next to him in Montgomery, Alabama.

In the 1960s and 70s, Hank Jr. released many covers of his father’s songs and had much success as a “Hank Williams impersonator,” but after he turned 18 in 1967, he severed ties with his mother and shifted his musical style into a very different direction. While we aren’t sure if they ever reconciled, we’re sure Hank Jr. still loves his mother.


It was prevalent on Mother’s Day this year. Coincidentally, he had two tour stops in Alabama – both of which were sold out – and was able to visit his mom’s gravesite on Mother’s Day.

“After 2 sold out shows in Alabama, I went to Montgomery for a Mother’s Day visit,” he wrote on Facebook.
