This song only made it up to #37 on Billboard's Top Country Singles charts and only stayed on the charts for 15 weeks. I thought it was a great cover...

Hank Jr. Did it best cause he is living it.

This is a Hank Jr original, just reference this lyric: "But his names a reminder of a Blues man that's already gone." Come on, People. Give credit to the right Blues man!

Jared...prob a b l y because George sang this song too. But he's not the original singer, Hank Williams Jr is. I like Alan's version the best.

"The Blues Man" is another 'reason' I'm listening to 'Country' music more often these days.

Jaxn. Alan is one of the top lyricist of this time period. Very soulful writing.

Why thanks to George? George is one of the greatest but not sure how he's due credit here?
