Described by the Chicago Tribune as “a tremendous performance…pure, classic Cadillac,” Hank Williams: Lost Highway follows Williams from his roots in Alabama to his meteoric rise to super-stardom on the stage of the world-famous Grand Ole Opry.
This toe-tapping musical tribute showcases what Williams did best: performing. Lost Highway features over 20 of Williams’s best loved songs, performed live by Hank and his band, the Drifting Cowboys, including timeless classics such as “Move It On Over”, “Jambalaya”, and “Your Cheatin’ Heart”. A humorous and heartfelt tribute, Lost Highwayreveals an intimate portrait of the passionate and troubled man behind the music.
