The granddaughter of the legendary country music singer Hank Williams and daughter to the southern rocker Hank Jr., Holly talks about discovering her country roots and venturing into the music world with her own unique voice.
In this episode, Holly shares a moving story about how a car accident almost killed her and her sister, Hilary. As they waited for help on the side of the road, her sister got a glimpse of heaven with her grandfather Hank telling her, "it wasn't her time." Inspired by this emotional event, she wrote "Without Jesus Here with Me" and shares a moving version of this powerful ballad.
A master storyteller, Holly talks about where she gets her inspiration and says some of her best songs were written while driving a car or stopping by a gas station. We find out she wrote the chorus to a big song on her latest album while filling up her tank.
Holly sings a soulful version of her granddaddy's "I Saw the Light," as well as excerpts from "Waiting on June," "Drinkin'" and "The Highway."
