Henry William Thompson was born in 1925 and was best known as Hank Thompson. He was a singer, songwriter, musician and country music singer. His career spanned seven decades. 

Thompson's musical style, characterized as honky tonk Western swing, was a mixture of fiddles, electric guitar and steel guitar that featured his distinctive, smooth baritone vocals.


The 1987 novel Crazy Heart by Thomas Cobb was inspired by Thompson's life, specifically by his practice of picking up a local band to back him when he toured. In 2009 Cobb's novel was turned into a successful starring Jeff Bridges.
