Most listeners of contemporary popular music don’t know that the legendary Hank Williams, the singer songwriter of â€œYour Cheatinâ€™ Heart,â€ was affected by spinal bifida.Â Williams’ spinal problem likely had serious consequences for his private life and his career.Â Â
We remember Hank Williams as well as blind country western singers, Doc Watson and Ronnie Milsap.Â
Coincidentally, born the same year as Hank Williams, Doc Watson was a world- famous blue grass and country musician, a guitarist, banjo and fiddle player as well as a singer songwriter.Â He died in 2012.
Acquaint yourselves with these and other Country & Western musicians as Pushing Limits continues to cover the very broad range of disability culture.Â
