The Lost Highway According to Colin Escott: "He was just 29 years old when he died on New Year's Day 1953 and had been a recording artist for just six years, yet Hank Williams is considered worldwide to be the most influential country music artist ever. Almost half a century later, you'll have to go far to find someone who doesn't know "Jambalaya", "Your Cheatin' Heart," or "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry". His music has endured, and unlike his contemporaries, Hank Williams reaches generations that neither knew him nor saw him."

On Sunday night, January 4th, we'll talk with biographer COLIN ESCOTT to learn about the Snapshots from the Lost Highway that shaped his songwriting. And then our special guest will be Hank’s lost daughter, JETT WILLIAMS, whose life resembled a soap opera as she discovered and sought to reclaim her true identity and birthrite.
