"Hank was my friend. That voice, at 15 years old, was strong as a grown man's, and you could understand every word."
- Braxton Schuffert... January 22, 1916-April 26, 2013
A SALUTE TO HANK WILLIAMS CD "MIDNIGHT"..I just wanted to write and personally thank each and every one of you that has contributed to this project, it's something I've wanted to put together for a long time and thanks to you guys it's finally going to happen and best of all, all the money made from the sale of this album will go directly to the Hank Williams Museum. I have a bunch of really talented folks working with me on putting this record together over the next week and I hope all of you will enjoy the final product once it's available!

*Six decades after his death, Hank Williams is one of the most powerful iconic figures in American Music.
*Fans come by the thousands each year to his grave site and the Museum that honors him.
*Hank was taught by a black street musician to play the blues. “Tee Tot” as he was known is also buried here in Montgomery.
*People from all walks of life who had been influenced by Hank's music packed the Montgomery City Auditorium to bid farewell on January 4, 1953.
*There is hardly a person that has listened to Hank's songs that doesn't feel the magic of his words.
The Hank Williams Museum in Montgomery, AL is a favorite destination for fans of the most famous country singer/songwriter in history. He is a treasure to the City and the State of Alabama, and we are paying tribute to the life and accomplishments of this magnificent legend whose name survives in a way that is unique in the history of music.
It is amazing after so many years that there are still things to be said and songs to be sung. Year by year since Hank's death in 1953, the real impact his songs made on American Music becomes more evident. His lifelong fans continue, and new admirers are added with each generation.
Hank Williams crowded a lot of living into twenty-nine years. It is difficult to understand how a man who possessed such a natural gift could produce this abundance of musical wealth in a few short years with a total disregard for proper rest, relaxation, or moderation even to the extent of untimely death.
It is safe to say, perhaps Hank Williams said all he had to say.
