For country music fans, In the Hank Williams Tradition is as good as it gets. This affectionate tribute combines a concise biography of Hank Williams Sr. with reminiscences by such Nashville greats as Roy Acuff, Chet Atkins, and Minnie Pearl, and performances of Williams's classics by some of country's finest contemporary artists. Randy Travis's moving rendition of "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" and Emmylou Harris's mellow take on "Half as Much" are just two examples of talk and music from a stellar lineup including Ricky Skaggs, Dwight Yoakam, Waylon Jennings, and others, all matching their own longevity with the timelessness of Hank Sr.'s musical legacy. Hank Williams Jr. recalls his father from "snapshots of memory," while Hank Sr. lives on through well-chosen performance clips that fully demonstrate his enduring appeal. A superstar jam on "I Saw the Light" puts a spiritual spin on Hank Sr.'s tragically short life, giving this 60-minute program a fitting tone of reverence and respect. --Jeff Shannon
