Hank Williams Jr.’s wife Mary Jane Thomas

Hank and Mary first met in 1985 at one of his concerts in Washington State and married in 1990. They had two children: a daughter, Katherine Williams-Dunning, and son, Samuel Williams.

They separated in 2007, but were able to work on their relationship and reconciled four years later in 2011.

Katherine (Katie) was killed in a car accident in Tennessee in 2020 when she lost control of the SUV she was driving. Tyler Dunning, her spouse, was airlifted to a hospital near the scene with severe injuries and survived the collision.

Hank Williams Jr.And Mary Jane Thomas Children

Mary Jane and Hank Jr. also have three grand children; two from their late daughter, Katie (Beau Weston Dunnings and Audrey Jane Dunnings), as well as a grandson from Sam named Tennyson.

Sam, Tom’s youngest son, claims in a video posted on YouTube in February that he was under a conservatorship filed by his father and half-sister Holly after Katie’s death, where Sam was greatly impacted by her passing. He held up a series of signs with one specifically saying ‘I want out’ during a silent, since-deleted video where he pleaded for help ending the court order.

‘I’ve been quiet a long time now. I want out of this, and I don’t mind people knowing,’ the video caption read.

‘They took my grief process, my spirit, my money, my car, my home, and everything possible in order to “protect me.” Well, I need protection from them.’

He added: ‘I have worked my broken heart to quits since my dear Katie left for Home. I do not deserve this. This is a scary step but I don’t see what else to do here.’

‘I am ashamed of my family and embarrassed. I am beyond done. I have my spirit back. Get. Me. Out. Please.’

TMZ verified the emergency conservatorship was filed in August 2020, and there has since been no further comment on the legal status of the court order.

Mary Jane Thomas Was Hank Williams Jr.’s Third Wife

Mary Jane was Williams’ third wife. He was first married to Gwen Yeargain from 1971-77, and the former couple had one son, musician Hank Williams III. He went on to marry Becky White from 1977-83, and they had two children together, daughters Holly and Hilary Williams, who both pursued careers in the music industry.

Holly gave birth to a daughter named Stella June in December 2020 and is married to Chris Coleman. Hank Jr. is the son of legendary musician Hank Williams, who is widely regarded as one of the most influential artists in the country music genre.

The senior Williams died in 1953 at the age of 29, but played such a pivotal role in transforming the western genre that country songs he wrote decades ago are still considered standards to this day.

Williams, 72, was recently inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, and is known for the song All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight, a version of which played on Monday Night football for more than 20 years.

During an interview on Oct. 3, 2011 on Fox & Friends, Williams called a golf game where President Barack Obama and Republican House Speaker John Boehner teamed up against Vice President Joe Biden and Ohio Governor John Kasich ‘one of the biggest political mistakes ever.’

When probed why the innocent game of 18 holes bothered him so much, he said: ‘Come on. That’d be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu … in the shape this country is in?’

He went on to describe the President and Vice President as ‘the enemy’ and then compared them to ‘the Three Stooges.’ When Gretchen Carlson commented: ‘You used the name of one of the most hated people in all of the world to describe, I think, the president,’ Williams replied, ‘Well, that is true. But I’m telling you like it is.’ Due to his statements, ESPN dropped his song from the Monday Night Football broadcast for the week and replaced it with the national anthem.

Hank said it was his own decision to pull his song from the sports network: ‘After reading hundreds of e-mails, I have made MY decision. By pulling my opening Oct 3rd, You (ESPN) stepped on the Toes of The First Amendment Freedom of Speech, so therefore Me, My Song, and All My Rowdy Friends are OUT OF HERE. It’s been a great run.’
