HANK JR. GOES HOME

Hank Williams Jr. returned to his hometown of Shreveport, Louisiana to record some new material and revel in a bit of nostalgia.

Williams recorded five new songs at Municipal Auditorium which once hosted the Louisiana Hayride radio show. The show featured many legends in the world of country music, including his father, Hank Williams Sr.

"Hank had a wonderful time," said Maggie Warwick, whose production company was involved in coordinating the recording session. "He loved being back where his dad started. He had a lot of sentimental memories of his dad."
