REMEMBERING GEORGE “POSSUM” JONES
When Hank Williams died on January 1, 1953 at the age of 29, the entertainment world went into a state of panic. Although he had been active for less than four years as a super-star, Hank managed to become the most popular country music performer in the business through his many hit recordings. Adding to his value was the fact that he also composed most of those memorable gems that would eventually be recorded by artists in all sectors of music.
Hank died in the backseat of his Cadillac in the wee hours of the morning while a 17 year old driver was attempting to haul him to Canton, Ohio for an appearance celebrating the arrival of a new year.
