Hank Williams' Lost Highway Band hits the stage

Legendary musician Hank Williams’ life ended too early and tragically. But in that short span of music making, Williams wrote some of the most memorable tunes. While many of us are familiar with songs like "Hey Good Lookin’"and "Jambalaya," fewer of us may be familiar with the life story of Williams. Music and words are deftly woven together in the play, Hank Williams: Lost Highway now playing at Chicago’s American Blues Theater. The actor who plays Williams and the show’s band stop by for some honky tonkin.
