Hank Williams, Jr. Lifting Self-Imposed Ban and Will Play New Year’s Eve Show
Hank Williams, Jr. will be headlining Nashville’s Music City New Year’s Eve Bash on lower Broadway this year.
Why is that newsworthy? Well, Bocephus is lifting his self-imposed ban of performing on that night.
Hank, Jr. explains: “For years, I have not performed on New Year’s Eve in honor of my father, but this year is a monumental year in the history of Hank Williams. If daddy would have lived, he would have been 90 years old this year.”
Hank Williams, Sr. died on New Year’s Day in 1953. He was only 29. The cause of death was heart failure but, of course, it was widely known he battled pill and alcohol addiction for a long time.
If you’ve got a wild hair to take a road trip to Nashville that day, keep in mind this event is free!
