Fall At The Hall: Hank III, Jerry Chesnut On Schedule

Hank III

Hank III

Hank Williams III will visit the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum on Sat., Oct. 10, for a special performance in the Museum’s Ford Theater. Like his father, Hank III blends the honky-tonk and country blues sounds of his grandfather with the rock & roll sensibility of his own generation. The program, which is presented in conjunction with the Museum’s exhibition Family Tradition: The Williams Family Legacy, Co-Presented by SunTrust and Ford Motor Company, will begin at 1:30 p.m. The program is included with Museum admission and is free to Museum members. It will be hosted by Family Tradition co-curator Michael McCall and may contain mature content.

The 1:30 p.m. program, which will be held in the Museum’s Ford Theater, is included with Museum admission and free to Museum members.

Museum Editor Michael Gray will conduct an in-depth, one-on-one interview with Chesnut, illustrated with audiovisual elements from the Museum’s collection, including recordings, photos and film clips. Chesnut will perform briefly during the program, and immediately following he will sign autographs in the Museum Store.
