Outlaw country musician Hank Williams III's third studio album, Straight to Hell, was originally released on February 28, 2006 by Bruc Records, an imprint of Curb Records. The first disc of the double LP features 13 songs while the second disc consists of a 42-minute hidden track sound collage of psychedelic music and samples.
"Straight to Hell created a rich and vibrant scene of bands and artists that is still around today, completely devoid of the industry, using the internet to find fans and connect with them, and inspiring bands to make music on their own. It opened doors for artists of today like Sturgill Simpson to have a space to operate in without the help of a major label. The album was a direct tie to the mid 70's Outlaw era in country with artists like Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings, and Tompall Glaser's renegade Hillbilly Central studios. It was the Outlaw attitude awakened in the modern era in both words and action." - Saving Country Music
There's a pure and soulful musical vision at the heart of Straight to Hell no matter how much Hank III lashes out against the confines of current country music and messes with the form, and that's what makes him most valuable as an outlaw - there's lots of long-haired dope-smoking rednecks out there, but not many that can tap into the sweet and dirty heart of American music the way Hank III does, and Straight to Hell proves he's got a whole lot to say on that particular subject.
In underground country, there was before Straight to Hell, and after Straight to Hell ... Angry, raw, explicit, but also erudite in its own way, Straight to Hell set a creative high watermark that arguably has yet to be attained again in country.
Musically traditional, lyrically edgy and sonically adventurous, Hank III translates his legacy singularly and without apology.
