I don’t have a strong opinion one way or the other on whether it’s important to reinstate Hank as a member of the Grand Old Opry.
If they decided to do it, they would probably make it a big media event and they would get more out of it financially, with ratings, sales etc than Hank will. He’s doing just fine thanks. Not so sure about the Opry. So I don’t know whether the petitioners have really thought this through!
So although Hank’s reputation sure doesn’t need this, I’m sure a lot of old time Hank fans will see it as a victory although I guess most of the original participants in the firing are gone.
But I see that over 34,000 people have signed, so for my little handful of readers, here’s the site where you can cast your vote for Hank.
I will sign, so there.
