I am BEYOND thrilled that Hank is safe in the hands of an actor of Hiddleston's talent and that Hiddleston won't have to wear a wig or dye his hair this time around. A little Brylcreem, maybe, under a Stetson. Thrilled, I tell you. I'm also thrilled that this casting news has given me a relevant excuse to do a mash up. Ready?
Williams wrote and recorded the gospel song "I Saw the Light" in 1948 and it's become a standard. The late Jessy Dixon takes the lead in a version that appeared in the Gaither Homecoming series.
Awake yet? Johnny Cash covered it more than once on The Johnny Cash Show in the 60s.
It's in the middle of a country gospel medley with Vince Gill, Charley Pride, Allison Krauss and, uh, most of the Grand Ole Opry here.
But of course the original is still the one I love the most.
Okay, I think I'm fully awake now. Y'all, uh, yinz have a great day!
