Thread Name: Hank Snow Festival
Subject: RE: Hank snow Festival
After trying singing at the basket houses and open stages in New York and pretty much living in Central Park one summer (1964), I took a Grayhound to Nashville and saw Hank at the Opry in the old Ryman. He said he was heading to the Illinois State Fair. I was heading back to Chicago then, so I went to the fair first and heard him again. His example showed me the importance of making sure people heard every word clearly. A fine singer.
Who was taller, though, Hank or Little Jimmy Dickens??
