Hank Williams’ Drifting Cowboys Member, Cois ‘Pee Wee’ Moultrie, Has Died at 89

Cois E. “Pee Wee” Moultrie (1922 – 2012)

While a young man, he performed with Hank Williams Sr. from 1938 to 1940 as a member of the original Drifting Cowboys band.

Pee Wee passed away unexpectedly at Fort Walton Beach Medical Center on the morning of Jan. 15, 2012.

The son of John Moultrie and Hattie Lee (Collier) Moultrie, Pee Wee was born and raised in Albertville, Ala.

He played on some of the rare recordings on the new Hank Williams CD that was just released a few months ago.

In his later years he became something of a celebrity, playing his accordion and singing at Southern festivals and attending events honoring the life and times of Hank Williams Sr.

Pee Wee contributed several artifacts from their time together to Hank Williams museums in Montgomery, Georgiana, and Nashville.
