Hank Jr has always been a favorite. After reading and seeing Living Proof it left no doubt in my mind he is no longer "Standing in the Shadows of a Very Famous Man" HE IS THE MAN!

We can all take a page out of Hank Jr's book, get up and be who you are not who someone wants you to be. Once he became his own person he became on of the best country singers we have and ever will have.

Richard Thomas "was" Hank Jr. in the movie. When I first read he was to play the role, I couldn't see it. I had read the book and was going to pass on the movie. Not because I didn't like Richard Thomas, I thought it wasn't possible for him to "be" Hank Jr. I am glad now I saw the movie and would gladly see it over again. I believed he was Hank Jr. may heart ached for what he was going through. I thought I was going to know what to expect but this movie passed my Greatest Expectations. Thank you for the telling the story, writing the book and making the movie. Hank Jr isn't Jr anymore to me.
