Last night at 7 o'clock the Methodist Church sponsored a performance by George Hamilton IV, a regular on the Grand Ole Opry who is often called the International Ambassador of Country Music. He put on a Gospel Show based on the life of Hank Williams. It was quite interesting, as well as entertaining, with lots of stories about Hank Williams.

He wore his trademark red checked shirt, topped with a black vest embroidered with his logo, IV.

You can read more about George Hamilton IV here: (This is his new website, still in development.) (This is the Wikipedia web page.)

In our latest Ocracoke Newsletter I share information about our many local cemeteries, with examples of some of our more interesting epitaphs. You can read it here.

    Perhaps your readers would like to know about Hank Williams too. The Hank Williams Museum is located in Montgomery Alabama. As is the F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald Museum. Granted they only lived in the rented house a short while( Zelda was born in Montgomery) Hank Williams had his professional debut in Montgomery. His Cadillac is there at the Museum in downtown Montgomery.
