Thread Name: Dylan given Hank Williams lyrics
Subject: Dylan given Hank Williams lyrics
Our local newpapers music reporter says that Bob Dylan was given a box of song lyrics that Hank Williams Sr had with him when he died. With around 65 songs. And that the family has asked Dylan to be in charge of putting music to the lyrics. Supposedly Dylan has contacted some other writers like Steve Earle to work on the project.

Is this news to anyone else? It sounds like an interesting project. I just wonder if there is any truth to it.
