Herzog studios is in the last standing building in the world where Hank Williams Sr. recorded his MGM releases. The other two Nashville buildings were torn down years ago. At Herzog, Williams recorded four songs on 12/22/48 and four songs on 8/30/49 including “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry.” Come celebrate this unique 70th anniversary, featuring a distinctive line-up of singer-songwriters “in the round”, in the very spot, on the very day, when Hank Williams made history.
As a follow-up to a 70th anniversary celebration held earlier in the year with local musicians like Dallas Moore and Slick Willie and the KY Jellies, this show will bring in an incredible mix of singer-songwriters heavily impacted by Hank Williams from around the country led by Joey Allcorn, who has performed and recorded with several of Hank Williams’ Drifting Cowboys. To note, Allcorn was a part of the 60th anniversary Hank at Herzog lineup at the Southgate House which raised funds for the Hank Williams and Herzog Studios historic marker located at 811 Race Street.
