Hank Williams Death Car is one of the centerpieces in the museum founded as a tribute to the country?s first music megastar. The car is a Cadillac which was used by Williams when he was driven to his last gig the night of 1953. He died due to a heart failure at the age of 29.

The Hank Williams Museum is located in his hometown in Montgomery and his former manager Betty Petty acts as the protective supervisor of the place. She said that the place is an area of Williams? legacy to the industry and to the country. The museum is off limits to personal photography of visitors and they have surveillance cameras all over the place.

Among the exhibited memorabilia are William?s nudie suits made by the Nudie Rodeo Tailors in Hollywood, as well as the last microphone he has sang into, a sofa from his house, and many colorful neckties.

Before placing the Cadillac in the museum in1999, Hank Williams Jr. managed to drive it when he was still in high school. The Hank Williams Death Car underwent restoration in Nashville Museum.

Many fans do not forget to visit Hank Williams Museum not only to take a look at the Cadillac but also to pay tribute to the first king of American music. Williams was able to write and sung 255 original pieces. Petty said that Williams? name and that of Elvis Presley should not be mentioned at the same time because the two could have become tough rivals only if the former did not die young. Williams lasted five years in the music industry.
