Though Hank III is the child of the burly bearded "Family Tradition" singer, he bares a strong resemblance to his granddaddy.
In this clip, Hank III is shown performing Hank Sr.'s song, "My Sweet Love Ain't Around." For his performance, he dons his grandfather's signature suit and tie, which fits perfectly on his tall, lanky figure. Aside from his appearance, his vocals practically match his grandpa's, too!
