Not surprisingly, Williams was [[TheAlcoholic no stranger to alcoholism]], even before his career got kicked into overdrive. This drinking problem was combined with a morphine addiction that caused his personal life to deteriorate sharply at the turn of TheFifties. Audrey divorced Williams (of course, not long after the birth of his son, Music/HankWilliamsJr, who would later become a well-known singer in his own right, and fathered Music/HankWilliamsIII, another notable singer and musician noted for his strong resemblance to his grandfather). His backing band split up, producer Fred Rose stopped supporting him, and he got fired from the Grand Ole Opry, only driving him further and further into alcoholism and other drug abuse. At the end, on January 1, 1953, Hank Williams was found dead while the car he was riding in was stopped in Oak Hill, West Virginia on his way to a concert in Canton, Ohio. He was only 29 years old. Incidentally, the last song he ever wrote was titled "[[HarsherInHindsight I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive]]."

Hiram King "Hank" Williams (September 17, 1923 - January 1, 1953) was an American musician who left an impact on the country music scene that few others before or since have ever made even before his signing to MGM Records in 1946, he was heralded as a talent worth watching with his unique style of "direct, emotional lyrics" and strong honky-tonk influences. Some of his best-known songs are "Lovesick Blues", "Cold, Cold Heart", "Hey, Good Lookin'", "Jambalaya (On the Bayou)", "Kaw-Liga" and "Your Cheatin' Heart." His band was known as the Drifting Cowboys.

Williams had spina bifida occulta, a congenital condition in which his spinal column was not completely closed, but the splits in the vertebrae were not large enough to expose his spinal cord. Most people with that condition show no symptoms. Unfortunately, that was not the case for Williams; he suffered from severe back pain throughout his life.
