Hank Williams Jr. Raises $75,000 for Hall of Fame

A solo acoustic concert by Hank Williams Jr. at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum on Tuesday night (Dec. 6) raised $75,000 for the organization. Williams noted that many of the artifacts from the Family Tradition: The Williams Family Legacy exhibit would stay with the museum and its archives. During the 90-minute set, Williams sang hits such as “A Country Boy Can Survive,” “Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound” and “The Blues Man.” In addition to playing songs by his father and musical heroes Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings, Williams previewed material from a new album due in March 2012. The Williams exhibit closes on Dec. 31.
