Film Description

Hank Williams remains one of the greatest figures of the county music world. Leaving a legacy of over 700 songs, performed more often than those of any other country composer, his unforced stage persona and heartfelt delivery formed a blueprint for country and western artists around the world.

Although he achieved near-legendary status and recognition in his own time, Hank Williams’ personal life was marked by adversity and upheaval. Domestic instability and lifelong, severe back pain increasingly led him to seek respite in alcohol and painkilling drugs. On January 1st, 1953, hours before a scheduled performance in Ohio, he was found dead in the back seat of his brand new Cadillac outside Oak Hill, West Virginia. He was just 29 years old.

In this critically acclaimed adaptation of Maynard Collins’ hugely successful stage production, Canadian country music veteran Sneezy Waters portrays Hank Williams in the final hours of his life. At the heart of the film is a powerful performance of Hank’s best-loved songs before a captivated live audience: it is ‘the show he never gave.’
