Jack White, Bob Dylan Salute Hank Williams
Jack White was recently asked by Bob Dylan to pay tribute to Hank Williams in a particularly novel way. According to the White Stripes and Raconteurs guitarist and vocalist, Dylan “came upon, somehow, 20 to 25 unfinished songs by Hank Williams — just the lyrics, no music — and he started to ask people if they would finish these songs.
“[Dylan] did one, asked Willie Nelson to do one, asked me to do one, and I think Lucinda Williams and Alan Jackson are on it, too,” White tells MTV News. “I think it might come out this year. It’s a cool record,” adds White, who recorded his contribution, a song titled ‘You Know That I Know,’ at Blackbird Studios in Nashville.
