Unknown Hinson





Unknown Hinson is the self-proclaimed King of Country-Western Troubadours but looks more like a hillbilly vampire.  His songs are funny and performed in a strong (authentic) southern accent.  Until you've seen him live, you can't quite grasp just how incredible he is on guitar.  I finally saw him at Radio Radio this past weekend, and it was an awesome experience.

The real man behind the character of Unknown Hinson is Stuart Daniel Baker.  He's a music teacher, a studio musician, and a voice actor.  He voices the character Early Cuyler for one of my favorite cartoons, Squidbillies.
