Legend has it that this song came to Hank Williams when he was thinking about his first wife while driving around with his second; Wife No. 2 wrote down the lyrics for him in the passenger seat. After polishing it with co-writer Fred Rose, Williams recorded “Your Cheatin' Heart” during the last sessions he ever did, on September 23rd, 1952. He told a friend, “It's the best heart song I ever wrote.” He never got to hear it become one of the greatest country standards of all time, having died in the backseat of his car on New Year’s Day 1953 at age 29, weeks before its release.
