Screw-ups and down-and-outers guzzle their poisons and bemoan their prisons all over Lovesick, Broke &… Driftin’, the second CD from this third-generation singer-songwriter. Hank III’s authentic, all right; his hard living shows in his hangover twang and his band of whiskey-twisted traditionalists. Trouble is, it’s hard to feel much compassion for an unlikable bum doing a country version of those drinking-song novelty CDs hawked on late-night TV.
