Hank III at Layla’s

What a show! We went down to Nashville to check out the town and catch Hank III’s gig at Layla’s which only fits a couple hundred people. The weather was freezing and icy but it gave us the town mostly to ourselves. We checked out a bunch of bars and heard lots of musicians. Hank III & the Damned Band played for over three hours. It was awesome. His fans are the coolest people you’d want to meet.

We also went to the Country Music Hall of Fame’s current exhibit Family Tradition: The Williams Family Legacy. It’s neat to see Hank’s stuff in a museum. We then headed over to Ernest Tubb’s Record Shop and beefed up our country heroes collection with Lefty Frizzell, Webb Pierce, Waylon, and others.

We had a blast and can’t wait to do it next year with better weather and a friend-of-hank approved list of honky tonks.
