This was much to the contrary of what I found him to be truly like. Of course, Hank Snow I can speak of is what I knew of him, the kind of person he really was from my first hand observations.
The very first thing that comes to mind, in my recall, is a particular situation that I think best relates his true and deeper nature. It was an event that occurred in his Grand Ole Opry dressing room, the night before my debut there. In any event, all of the Rainbow Ranch Boys were there in the dressing room. They were just as friendly a group of fellas as could be. In all the conversations, at last, one broke Various - Family Ties Latin Rap Compilation with a story that recalled a 'voluptouous' woman that they had encountered in their touring days.
One that literally 'threw herself' again, voluptuously and literally speaking! I believe you understand what I mean by that. She was speaking right up in their faces, purposely and shamelessly flaunting her wares! Hank Snow all it amounted to I really didn't think much of that story as you hear so much of that kind of talk, in Hank Snow about the business and life, in general. The next morning, in my hotel room, I get a call from Hank I assured him it hadn't bothered me and that I've heard much of the like, many times before.
Besides, it was almost 'innocent' humor This greatly Could Not Live Without You - Phil Lewis - El Nino me! This to me, was 'the man' - Hank Snow!
High moral fiber, willing to risk whatever ridicule, etc. Not that what the band had said, had even bordered on the more infamous trash-mouths of our time! Again, it was mild comparatively, but again, Hank was that kind of man! A real, super decent man! Another incident related to the appearance on the Opry shows more Hank's nature. BMI was supposed to send out a photographer that night per my label at the time and shoot some promotional shots for the forthcoming CD, "Rig Rock Jukebox" which featured my "New Blue Yodel" and my 'debut' song for that nightbut had something else come up.
Hank employed his friend, Ruth Bauer, to shoot the photos instead. This, was all unbeknownst to me, until much later. He was a top-rate person! A quiet man, which is often misread as a stuck-up, etc. A good heart. I am truly proud to have known him and blessed by his acquaintance. His style of music is a blend of folk, traditional country and blues, that ultimately creates his own unique style of Americana. Baltimore's "Citypaper" summed it up: "Brine knows his stuff well enough to know that there was a time in this country when blues, country, jazz, gospel and popular song were not nearly as isolated from each other as they are today.
