Hank Williams Videos


The Campaign

The Reinstate Hank campaign calls for the remittal of Opry star, and country music legend, Hank Williams. More than fifty years have passed since the tragic and untimely death of country music's greatest performer, who made his debut at the Grand Ole Opry on June 11, 1949, with the crowd demanding an unheard of six encores.

A few years later, in 1952, Hiram Hank Williams was dismissed from the Opry with the understanding that he would sober up and then return to the stage that he loved so much. Sadly, he passed away in the back seat of his car a few months later and never made that momentous return.

Despite being one of the most powerfully iconic figures in American music, Hank Williams has yet to be reinstated to the Opry. Now, your help is needed to honor and preserve his legacy. Join the campaign and add your signature to the petition to Reinstate Hank Williams to the Grand Ole Opry.

Rolling Stone Covers Reinstate Hank Williams Sr.

Howdy Folks!

Rolling Stone Magazine interviewed Hank III and has given notice of the Reinstate Hank Williams movement and Petition in the 'Smoking Section' of the current issue! You can view the article below:


Hank elaborated on his grandfather's unfair dismissal as a standing member of the Grand Ole Opry -- Nashville's home of country music -- and about the grassroots movement to get his grandfather reinstated. Hank Williams' Opry membership was stripped in 1952 (many speculate it was due to his alcoholism), yet despite being booted, his grandson claims that the Opry, "continues to put out records saying, 'This is Hank Williams live from the Grand Ole Opry' and using his image and likeness."
