Hank Williams was the centerpiece of a ceremony in Cincinnati Sunday November 22, 2009 honoring the musicians who recorded at the historic Herzog Recording Studio.
I wrote a post on this site earlier concerning plans to recognize the the studio with some details on Hank’s recordings there with dates, and a list of some of the other stars who recorded at this studio.
There is a good article on the Herzog Studio and history including references to Hank Williams and the many country stars who came there in the 40’s to record with the Pleasant Valley Boys, Nashville musicians who were there to appear on a popular early country TV show.
And K. F. Raizor has a good write up on his blog.
Of course with ‘Lovesick Blues’ and ‘I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry’ plus other Hank Williams classics recorded there, it’s no wonder Hank was the centre of the cermony. In fact, a two sided plaque was unveiled, with one side devoted entirely to Hank Williams.
Here’s a TV station link which has a bit of video of the unveiling on Sunday.
