Gene Watson, Jett Williams and many other Nashville music-makers thrilled the audience on Saturday night. The fans were treated to Frank Foster and James DuPre on Friday. In addition, many other local and regional artists took the stage and did a great job. Overall, it was one of the best performances ever held on the stage of the Hank Williams Music Festival.

The history of the building in which the museum is housed dates back to 1903, and is
named on Alabama
Landmarks & Heritage List.
Mayor Lynn Watson stands beside the rebuilt Thigpen roadhouse and dance hall, where Hank often played. The City of Georgiana tore down what was left of the original cabin and honky-tonk, and rebuilt it on the festival grounds in 1994. The back part of it serves as the stage for entertainers.

Today's Hank Williams Festival is enjoyed by fans from throughout the world. Only a few people realize that it had its origins a few miles away, with the stage being a flat bed truck.
We will add more on the history of the festival in the near future.
