‘Your Cheatin' Heart’ is a song written and recorded by country music singer-songwriter Hank Williams in 1952, regarded as one of country's most important standards. Williams was inspired to write the song while driving with his fianceé from Nashville, Tennessee to Shreveport, Louisiana. After describing his first wife Audrey Sheppard as a "Cheatin' Heart", he dictated in minutes the lyrics to Billie Jean Jones. Produced by Fred Rose, Williams recorded the song on his last session at Castle Records in Nashville, Tennessee, on September 23. It was released posthumously in 1953.
