This past weekend marks the anniversary of the death of 'real' country music superstar, Hank Williams, Sr., and the Liberty Theater in Eunice, Louisiana, is going to remember by hosting a two and a half hour Hank Williams music show. Sheila and I once owned ten acres very near Eunice, and was pleased to have Happy Valley June Campbell and her husband Jerry visit us there. We took them to the Liberty Theater way back then. Normally, it's a very traditional Cajun music show, but the one this weekend will consist of Hank's songs in chronological order, revealing how he evolved into a constantly better songwriter. He recorded 35 singles that placed in the top-10, including eleven that were number one.
