Hank Jr. raises $75,000 for Country Music Hall of Fame

Of all the "family traditions" that Hank Williams Jr. is famous for, my favorite is still the music. Yesterday Hank treated fans at Nashville's Country Music Hall of Fame to some of his best. He played some of his hits like A Country Boy Can Survive, Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound and The Blues Man (with his youngest son, Sam, joining in on the family tradition.) Hank Jr. also played several classics from his father and his musical heroes Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings. He also sprinkled in a few tunes from his new CD, due out next March.
The concert capped off the four year exhibit, "Family Tradition: The Williams Family Legacy." Although that exhibit will officially end on December 31, 2011, Hank Jr. announced that many of the items he donated for the exhibit will remain at the museum. That and the $75K he raised makes for a nice early Christmas present for the Hall of Fame. If you'd like to follow Hank's lead, you can donate here to support the HoF and museum.
