Anniversary of Hank Williams Death
Williams, after all, was sickly and had long-term drinking and drug abuse problems. It wasn't unusual for him to be found passed out. But when Carr finally checked on Williams in Oak Hill, West Virginia, the singer was cold, blue and stiff. He was dead, at the age of just 29.
Official documents, naturally enough, state that Williams died on January 1, 1953, but the exact time of his death (and where he actually passed away) has been shrouded in mystery for years. more on this story
