Hank Williams: Lost Highway
By Bryan Bartlett
Murray, KY – On a warm night in June 1949, with his first number one record spilling out of radios across the country, a frail young man walked onto the stage of Nashville's Ryman Auditorium for his Grand Ole Opry debut. Behind him lay nearly a decade of struggle and rejection; ahead - little more than five years in the limelight. This of course was legendary singer/songwriter Hank Williams. His story will be told on stage at Murray's Playhouse in the Park in the play "Hank Williams: Lost Highway."
