Whatever Happened To Hank Locklin
Hank Locklin came out of the panhandle of Florida, and as a child worked in the cotton fields to help his family. He became one of the biggest names in country music history.
Hank was one of the early ‘honky ton’ singers in country music. Most folks may not know that Hank had 70…yes 70…chart singles, including six #1 hits.
His signature song was ‘Please Help Me I’m Falling’, a huge #1 country hit in 1960 and a song that also made the pop charts as a Top Ten hit. (In this video clip, you’ll see and hear an 89 year old Hank, voice still strong and pure!).
A proud Grand Ole Opry member for nearly a half century, Hank lived to be 91 years old, passing away at his home March 8th, 2009.
