Ray Price’s home is being prepared for a special Thanksgiving as the legendary singer is expected to be home for the holiday.

Here is a message from the great protege of Hank Williams posted in his Facebook page on November 8.

Hello Friends,
Looks like this Long Days Night is finally at an end.
I am winding down my hospital stay and looking forward to my own easy chair!
Janie and I are exhausted and to quote our Hero, Audie Murphy, We Have Been To Hell And Back.
And like Audie said, This Has Been A Tough Hill To Climb!
I plan to spend more time keeping up with you folks, so hang in there with me.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me and Janie these last 60 Days. Janie read them to me even when I could not speak a word. I will never forget your words of encouragement that gave me the will to live a little bit longer on this old earth! !
Your Friend, Ray Price

Well loved Hank biographer is ill

There’s a lot of concern in the Hank Williams community with the news that George Merritt co-author of the most important Hank Williams biography is seriously ill.

Merritt helped write ‘Hank Williams: The Biography’ with Colin Escott and William MacEwen. It’s been in print for many, many years.

Merritt was ill, then broke a hip, but is now recovering.

His birthday is November 14.

I think it would be OK to send get well messages and birthday greetings to this email.
