So Lonesome I Could Cry
On August 15, 1952, Hank Williams bought the baby blue Cadillac he'd eventually die in. On August 16, “Jambalaya” hit #1. On August 17, he was jailed for public drunkenness in Alexander City, Alabama, where he was vacationing. He was 28. Williams appears seven times in A Book of Ages.
