Hank Williams to Be Honored at Country Music Hall of Fame
Hank Williams will be honored by the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum on April 16 with the special program, 'I Saw the Light: Songwriters Salute Hank.'
Rodney Crowell, Ashley Monroe, the Secret Sisters and Steve Young will participate in the event, which is being held in association with an exhibition at the museum titled 'Family Tradition: The Williams Family Legacy,' presented by SunTrust. Each songwriter will perform their own Hank-inspired songs, and discuss how studying the country legend shaped their careers.
Widely regarded as one of the most influential country artists of all time, Hank earned 11 No. 1 songs in his short career. His most recognizable hits include 'Hey Good Lookin',' 'I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry' and 'Your Cheatin' Heart.'
Hosted by Family Tradition co-curator Michael McCall, the event will begin at 1:30 PM in the museum's Ford Theater. The program is included in the price of admission to the museum and is free to members.
