Hank Williams’ Montgomery, Alabama

17 Apr

Hank Williams may have made his name is Nashville, but he was a son of Montgomery, AL. Hard living, alcohol and pain pills killed Ole Hank at the tender age of just 29 years old. Yes, 29 years old! Just think of the music he might have produced had he lived a longer life. Needless to say, his catalog of classic country songs is still incredibly impressive.  

“I Saw the Light” was Hank’s biggest gospel hit
