Hank Williams: Honky Tonk Blues PDF Print E-mail

Directed by Morgan Neville



By the time Hank Williams died, drunk, drugged and alone in the back seat of his Cadillac on New Year's Eve 1952, he had redefined country music. He was 29 years old. Honky Tonk Blues is the first feature length documentary to tell the story of Country music's most important figure and his brilliant, tortured life.

Honky Tonk Blues recovers Hank Williams from the legend. Using never-before-seen footage, photos and audio of Williams and featuring interviews with many friends and family who have never spoken on-camera before, Honky Tonk Blues tells the story of Hank WIlliams' rise and fall in full, vivid detail.
