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.

Daughter of Original 'Driftin Cowboys' Signs Reinstate Hank Petition

Howdy Folks!

Daughter of the late Dennis Brown, one of the Original 'Driftin Cowboys', has signed the Reinstate Hank Petition. She left wonderful public comments and they're noted below:

"My Father, Paul Dennis, was one of the original drifting cowboys. He went home to be with the Lord on June 28, 2002. Also, my dad's longtime buddy and musician friend Lum York. I know that they would be the first to say that Hank Williams, Sr. should be reinstated. I feel that it would be an injustice to not only Hank but his family, friends, and loyal country music fans. I ask that you do the right thing.....reinstate Hank Williams, Sr. to his rightful place.

Thank you,

Millie Dennis Brown"

Comments From The Petition - 06 Aug 2008

If you haven't taken time to read the comments on the Petition, here's a handful from the past few days. It's always a pleasure to hear what's on the people's mind. The emotions run across the board, and are of course the opinion of the individual being quoted.

"please reinstate hank williams, from a little bisket eater from way back (card carrying)
lets do this now!" Aug 4th

"come on folks, sign this petition. lets get hank back to his home." Aug 5th

"Reinstate Hank you dogs. You've been banking on his name and style for over 50 years." Aug 5th

"Hank deserves to be in the opry. Taylor Swift needs to be opted out." Aug 3rd

"It is a disgrace that this man who has molded country music into the mecca of all music entertainment hasn't been given the recognition he is due. Listening to this new stuff that is now "country". It amazes me that this man who defined country music, is absent from such a forum." Aug 2nd
