Jett Williams

18-Oct-2017

The daughter of Hank Williams, Jett's birth came five days after the legendary performer's untimely death. Throughout her childhood she picked up tantalizing hints as to her father might be,but it was not until she was twenty-one that she learned enough about her past to lead to her learning true details of her biological parents. Eventually in 1985, the Alabama State Court officially declared her to be the daughter of Hank Williams. Two years later, the Alabama Supreme Court ruled that she was entitled to a half-share in the Williams estate, along with her half-brother, Hank Williams, Jr who is three years her senior. As the 90s ended, she and her half-brother ended many years of antipathy and were reconciled. 
Williams published her autobiography in 1990, detailing much of her search for identity. Musically speaking, though Williams' identity has been clear for many years . She made her professional debut in 1989 and in 1993 she appeared at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. On Tour, she has worked often with the Drifting Cowboys, a group led by original member Don Helms. The dedication Williams has to country music is readily organisations and in matters of social importance, and this was acknowledged in 2000 when the Tennessee House of Representatives passed a resolution recognising her work . 
Williams is also critically acclaimed author. Her 1990 autobiography , Ain't Nothing as Sweet as My Baby, tells the story of her childhood and her successful search to uncover the mystery of her birth. The Library of Congress named it one of its Top 100 Books of the Year and distributed it to every public library in the country. In 2008 she partnered with Timelife to release a boxed set of previously unrealised Hank Williams' recordings, earning Jett her first Grammy nominations as executive producer.
