Lamar Smyly singer songwriter as promoted on Hawkesbury Radio 89.9FM 29th November 2015. “There are so many, many mothers in this old world, but there are very, very few Mamas.
This song is about how Mama was. She was so very, very special. Hope you will enjoy it. My songs are about real life, he explains, not just a song with a hookline.
Most of my songs are about my experiences in life, or someone else’s that I know or have known. Like old Hank Williams, my songs have deep feelings in them.
I’ve written a few that are comical but most are about things that folks have experienced or will experience sometime in their life.
Lamar Smyly – Songwriter
I’d like for all persons who love true country music to be able to hear and enjoy mine. The message in my music is true and real. Hope you’ll enjoy it.”

Hiram “Hank” Williams (September 17, 1923 – January 1, 1953) was an American singer-songwriter. Regarded as one of the most significant and influential American singers and songwriters of the 20th century, Williams recorded 35 singles (five released posthumously) that reached the Top 10 of the Billboard Country & Western Best Sellers chart, including 11 that ranked number one (three posthumously).
Many artists recorded songs Williams wrote and recorded. He influenced Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, George Jones, and The Rolling Stones, among others. Williams was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame (1961), the Songwriters Hall of Fame (1970) and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1987).
In 2011 Williams’ 1949 MGM number one hit, “Lovesick Blues”, was inducted into the Recording Academy Grammy Hall of Fame. The same year Hank Williams: The Complete Mother’s Best Recordings … Plus! was honoured with a Grammy nomination for Best Historical Album.
In 1999, Williams was inducted into the Native American Music Hall of Fame. On April 12, 2010, the Pulitzer Prize Board awarded Williams a posthumous special citation that paid tribute to his “craftsmanship as a songwriter who expressed universal feelings with poignant simplicity and played a pivotal role in transforming country music into a major musical and cultural force in American life”.
Keeping his legacy alive, Williams’ son, Hank Williams Jr., daughter Jett Williams, grandson Hank Williams III, and granddaughters Hilary Williams and Holly Williams are also country musicians. (Wikipedia).
