Bristol/Hank Williams connection honored by country musician Willie Jones
Country music artist Willie Jones visited Bristol, the Birthplace of Country Music, this week to prepare for the release of his two-part project. Jones uses samples from Hank Williams songs, and says he wanted to visit Bristol because of the country legend’s famous connection to the Twin City.
The local legend is that Hank Williams ate his last meal at a burger joint in Bristol, and Jones says he wanted to pay tribute to Williams by visiting the area. Willie Jones is set to release two new songs, Slow Cookin’ and Soul Food, on Friday.
