Hank Williams Sr. – Legend Would Be 90
September 2013 would have marked Hank Williams, Sr.’s 90th Birthday (9/17/1923).
In his very short recording career, 1947-1953, the iconic music legend wrote and recorded a string of timeless classics that would be covered in all genres of music. This Sunday Morning, 6-9am eastern, 1077 GNA dedicates the Classic Country Hall of Fame show to the hits of Hank Williams Sr., including ‘Hey Good Lookin” ‘Cold Cold Heart’ ‘I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry’ ‘Your Cheatin’ Heart’ ‘Move It On Over’ and ‘Jambalaya.’ In addition, we’ll feature some songs written as tributes to Hank Williams, including ‘The Ride’ by David Allen Coe and ‘Midnight In Montgomery’ by Alan Jackson.
Hank Williams died at the age of 29 on December 1, 1953. If he had lived, do you think Hank Williams would have continued to record and tour as a ‘senior’ artist?
