Ever since Hank Williams formed his first band, it was always called "The Drifting Cowboys". Through the years, the Drifting Cowboys was composed of different members at different times. The Original "Drifting Cowboys" Band, however, was made up of Jerry Rivers, Don Helms, Bob McNett and Hillous Butrum. Considered to be the 'Original band' because they were used on most of Williams' recordings. Here are the names of those that were, at one point or another, in Hank Williams' "Drifting Cowboys"…
