Although Williams’s recordings earned him numerous country hits throughout the 1960s and early 1970s with his role as a “Hank Williams impersonator”, he became disillusioned and severed ties with his mother. He has five children: Hank Williams III, Holly Williams, Hilary Williams, Samuel Williams, and Katie Williams.
