“It was a year ago that I made my first performance on the Grand Ole Opry in over 17 years. And boy, it was a sad night as I honored my brother, Waylon Jennings,” Hank Williams Jr. said. “This time I will be honoring my father and who better to be performing with but my own son, Shelton (Hank III).”

This will be the first time Hank Jr. and Hank III have performed together.

Williams Sr. died at age 29 on New Year’s Day in 1953 while en route to a concert. Although his career was a scant four years long, he is considered a legend in the country world. He charted 11 No. 1 singles during that time and became famous for songs including “Your Cheatin’ Heart,” “Lovesick Blues,” and “Cold, Cold Heart.”

Hank Sr. made his Grand Ole Opry debut in 1949 and was so well-received he was brought back to perform six encores. However, things soon soured for him and in 1952, the Opry fired him for his alcohol problems. Williams was continually intoxicated and often performed drunk, if he actually made it to the gig.

Williams fans who can’t make it to Nashville can catch the show on “Grand Ole Opry Live” airing on CMT.
