August 30 Hank Williams Recorded ‘I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry’

August 30, 1949, Hank Williams went into Herzog Studio in Cincinnati to record ‘I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry’.

Williams wrote the song originally intending that the words be spoken, rather than sung. Largely inspired by his troubled relationship with wife Audrey Sheppard, Williams penned this chart hitting song.

Although there is question as to the original author of the song, Williams was the original artist recording this song on the B side of “My Bucket’s Got a Hole in It”.
