What year did hank williams when his first grammy?

Country music artist Hank Williams received his first and only Grammy, posthumously in 1990, for "There's a Tear in My Beer" with his son Hank Williams, Jr.

Williams did not release the song while he was alive. His son released it in 1989 with his voice and band merged with the original recording.

Williams died at age 29 from a drug/alcohol-related heart attack on January 1, 1953.

The Last Ride, in theaters now, is about his last three days alive, with Henry Thomas playing the role of Williams. Thomas is well known as a child actor for his role as Elliott in the 1982 Steven Spielberg film E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial.
