I was born and raised in Kentucky. I've always been a bit of an adventurer, self motivated, self confident, a good friend to have, a good talker and a good listener too. I accomplish things I set out to do, I'm not a bad dancer and I'm a pretty good cook :)
I dropped out of the University at age 18 and joined the air force and spent 2 years in England. Ended with the military following a deadly automobile crash which left my fiance' dead and me permanently (partially) crippled/etc, with no medical benefits, etc... I returned to Kentucky in 1980 and by the Spring of 1981. I soon began performing live shows "Solo" in Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio. Then put together the Hank Smith Review Band and toured awhile. Then moved to Nashville awhile, then moved to Florida awhile and married my 1st wife, then moved to Michigan awhile, then moved to Texas and stayed a year. I played live shows (solo and with bands) in 1/2 of the United States (bars, venues, fest's, truck stops, street corners for tips, honkytonks and small concerts).
Yes, I love traveling and I moved to Germany in 1985 with a suitcase in 1 hand, a guitar in 1 hand and $1200 in my pocket. I divorced in 1986 and remarried in 1988. I lived in Europe for 28 years and I raised my Son, I performed live shows in many Countries, recorded 5 CDs, and I became the Chairman, President and CEO of an American Stockbrokerage Corporation and an Offshore Asset Management Company. I divorced in 2001. Moved to France in 2009. Had a wonderful life in Europe but decided it was time to return to the US and get back into the American Music Scene full time. I sold the companies in 2012 and got remarried, and I moved back to the USA in 2013.
