127 Rose St. in Georgiana, Alabama…where a young boy and his $3.50 guitar began his journey to becoming a country music legend. I was never a huge Hank Williams fan, but respected his work and the impact he had on the music world. It is pretty impressive how much he accomplished in his short life of 29 years. The guide at the museum shared that his positive connection to music and the joy he got from playing his guitar early on was oftentimes his way of escaping from the hard times his family experienced.
One of the guitars Hank Williams played was also played by Elvis Presley several years later! Pretty cool!
