Snow was an accomplished songwriter whose clear, baritone voice expressed a wide range of emotions including the joys of freedom and travel as well as the anguish of tortured love. His music was rooted in his beginnings in small town Nova Scotia where, as a frail, 80-pound youngster, he endured extreme poverty, beatings and psychological abuse as well as physically punishing labour during the economically depressed 1920s and 30s. ~ Wikipedia: Hank Snow ~ retrieved May 9, 2014 © Wikipedia

Hank Snow ~ Inducted in the 1979 Canadian Music Hall of Fame ~ Undeniably, Hank Snow is a pioneer. One of the most significant forces in country music, the Hall of Fame member has been recording for 44 years. During that time he has released over 100 albums, developed a unique style of flat-picking on the guitar and written songs that are part of the bedrock of country music tradition. ~ 1979 © Canadian Music Hall Of Fame
