Happy birthday Dad I had to get the icon an iconic gift this year, so I commissioned a painting from @raybomusic to commemorate his career. Thank you so much for your talent on this project Ray!! Being in the spotlight from a teenager on, my father’s life has been a whirlwind. I’m so thankful that God spared your life in 1975, I see the incredible things you’ve done from selling 70 million albums to being there for your youngest kids. Everyone who is anyone in music looks up to your authenticity, independent attitude, and ability to straight up entertain. But y’all don’t get to see that he’s actually the funniest person on earth without trying. For example, the stories and manner in which he shot his Civil War cannon today 😂😂 As a child I was intimidated by my family’s status and my dad’s career.. I grew up to now idolize so much of who you are. Everyone say Happy Birthday Hank!!!! He’s already asleep that’s for damn sure ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
