Profile: The Brazos Valley Boys, was voted the top Country Western Band for 14 years in a row by Billboard. The primary difference between The Brazos Valley Boys music and that of Bob Wills was that Hank Thompson, who used the swing beat and instrumentation to enhance his vocals, discouraged the intense instrumental soloing from his musicians that Bob Wills encouraged; however, the "Hank Thompson sound" exceeded Bob Wills in Top 40 country hits.

At the Golden Nugget. Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). This version of the Brazos Valley Boys is playing hot and it certainly helps having Merle Travis as part of your band. Hank was one of the best and this album captures him in his prime.

Disc One opens with those early jewels - there's not a recording on this 30-song CD, and the playing, while a little crude compared to Thompson's later work, is a match for anything being recorded at the time. Disc Three begins Thompson's history as an album artist, and the character and quality of the material changes somewhat - there are a few more slow numbers, and some slight sameness begins to intrude into the music, but the quality of the performances is undiminished

His LP, made at the Golden Nugget, Las Vegas, in 1960, was among country music’s earliest live albums. He also built up a faithful following on the rodeo and county fair circuits. In 1989 he was voted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, and, in 1997, the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Also in 1997 he released Hank Thompson and Friends, an album of duets with George Jones, Lyle Lovett and other country music names
