Subject: RE: Hank snow Festival
Hank discovered Elvis and brought him to Nashville where he introduced him to Tom Parker, who was at the time his (Hank's) manager. Hank's intention was that he and Parker would co-manage the still unknown "King" but Parker signed Elvis to an exclusive contract cutting Hank out. Hank never forgave Parker.
Yes, Hank was a great picker as well as a singer. He and Chet recorded some great guitar duets.
