DAY #1 HANK WILLIAMS’ 100th BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION MONTGOMERY, AL – Sept 15TH
September 15, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm
Put those boots on and come celebrate Day #1 of 100 years of Hank Williams.
The Hank Williams Museum in Montgomery presents the Centennial of Hank Williams’ birth on Friday, Sept. 15, 2023. DAY #1 show will be held at the Davis Theatre starting at 6:30 PM. (Doors open at 5:30 PM.) Guest stars are Rhonda Vincent, David Ball, and David Church. Join in for this historical event as we solute the most iconic Alabamian in country music.
Rhonda Vincent, Grammy Award Winning Queen of Bluegrass and Grand Ole Opry Member, is a multi-instrumentalist best known for the Mandolin. Vincent’s music honors the traditions of classic bluegrass while also finding room for the more contemporary melodic and lyrical outlook of country music, and her backing band The Rage has the skill to keep up with her powerful abilities as a picker and a harmony singer.
David Ball has been an active singer-songwriter and musician since 1988 and has recorded a total of nine albums including his platinum-certified 1994 debut Thinkin’ Problem. His prize single Riding With Private Malone is referred to as “the country song that tapped most subtly and profoundly into the emotions of its audience”. David’s voice has a classic and honky tonk sound with a mix of old-school that you will find yourself dancing in your seat.
David Church, star of RFD-TV’s Midwest Country will open the weekend-long celebration with his authentic tribute rendition of Hank Williams. Known for his uncanny ability to sound like Hank Williams, David will take you back in time to relive the greatest days of country music’s largest icon. Any music lover will enjoy this show as no matter what genre you enjoy, there will likely be a connection to Hank’s musical legacy.
