PBS Features Hank Williams on American Experience
August 10, 2005
The PBS documentary series American Experience presents Hank Williams: Honky Tonk Blues tonight (8/10) at 9 p.m. EST in many markets (it's fund drive season again, so you should check your local listings). Williams was a masterful singer/songwriter and star of the Grand Ole Opry who rose fast and fell from a great height equally as quickly. By 29 - with failed relationships, a problem with alcohol and a break with the Opry taking over his life - he was dead. Even today, Hank Williams remains a musical legend on the level of Elvis and the Beatles.
