Sunday's Selection



Ever hear of Hank Snow? Well, having grown up here in Nova Scotia, I remember hearing his music during much of my 'growing up' years.


You see Hank Snow was born right here in Nova Scotia in a town/village called Brooklyn which is on the south shore.


I think he is 'country' at it's best when it was truly country music. Hope you enjoy this and have yourselves a great Sunday, ya hear!




And since it is Sunday why not check out Your Sunday Best over at Nancy's A Rural Journal. You will see some beautiful photography.

  1. Oh Jim, this made me cry!! When my Dad passed away (suddenly) at age 53... this album was found on the stereo - the last thing he listened to. He loved Hank Snow. I still have many of the albums that Dad left. And of course, now I love Hank because he brings my dad back in memory. Thanks for sharing this.

  2. Bobbi, how coincidental is that! Sorry it made you cry but I hope it was good tears. See how connected the 'world' can be?

  13. I have never heard of him but I love this kind of music. It sounds much older that 1965.
    Your Friend, m.

  14. Hello you! Hope you are ok, I am just catching up with my favourite bloggy pals, still not back to it, but, still thinking about you all! I was only 12 when I left Nova Scotia, so can't say I know Hank Snow, but sounds great! Suzie xxx

  16. I was born and raised in Nashville, TN, so yes, I've heard of (and heard) Hank Snow. He was one of my momma's favorites, along with Jim Reeves and Patsy Cline...
    Beautiful photos! I saw your linkup on Becky Leatherman's blog...
