Hank Williams Tribute


Editorial Review

Every year at the Birchmere, a group of country musicians gathers to mark the passing of Hiram King William Sr., better known as Hank, who died Jan. 1, 1953. Williams, the author of such seminal country classics as "Your Cheatin' Heart" and "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry," died at age 29 at the height of his popularity. For the 15th year, he's being honored with a honky-tonk, featuring Grand Ole Opry vets Robin and Linda Williams, Bill Kirchen, Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer.
