Reinstate Hank

banner061

Hank Williams III has started a petition campaign to get his grandfather, country music legend Hank Williams, reinstated into the Grand Ole Opry. Williams was banned from the opry in 1952 because of his substance abuse problems and told not to come back until he was sober. Unfortunately he died before he got t he chance to return to the opry, and remains banned to this day. However, the opry sees fit to use his image, music and memory for promotional purposes. They even have a Hank impersonator greeting people at their door. This is simply outrageous. Please help get Hank reinstated by signing the petition here, or learn more about the campaign here.
