Thanks for posting that: a lovely surprise to hear it. Almost everyone does/did Hank, but it never crossed my mind that Louis Armstrong might have done so! He makes a completely different, but equally good song of it.

I listen to a lot of Hank Williams, Maddox Brothers, Charlie Feathers, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Sonny Burgess, Johnny Burnette and the like. No one can beat Hank Williams for the way that his songs have become woven into the fabric of music history, although Chuck Berry comes close. A modern band in the same hillbilly/country/rockabilly overlap that I like is Doug C and the Blacklisted. I also have a bit of a Motörhead habit.
