THE LAST RIDE
A Story of Hank Williams
Music's Original Bad Boy
January 19 @ 8:00 PM

Tickets $12 advance - $15 door


He called himself Luke the Drifter.


He pioneered and pretty much invented what we know today as Country Music.  At the peak of his career, he was acknowledged to be the greatest singer-songwriter in American. After a meteoric rise to super-stardom, Hank Williams made a train wreck of his life.


Drugs, alcohol, and a hair-trigger temper ended two marriages, ruined a host of friendships and made the "Hillbilly Shakespeare" an untouchable in the music business. At the end of 1952, Hank Williams gathered what was left of his physical strength to begin the long road back.  He booked shows in West Virginia and Ohio, and hired a local kid who didn't even own a radio, much less know who this legend was, to drive him to Alabama.


He never got there. Somewhere on that last highway, the country music legend passed away in back of his powder blue Cadillac. He was carrying only his guitar and a notebook full of unfinished songs. Inspired by the mysterious final days of Hank Williams' life, THE LAST RIDE is the story of that final drive through the Appalachian countryside of 1950's America.
