The singer Hank Williams has several attractions devoted to him in Alabama, his home state. These include his boyhood home in Georgiana; the restored Kowaliga cabin where he wrote "Your Cheatin Heart;" a statue of him in a park across from where his funeral was held in Montgomery; and his grave, in Oakwood Cemetery. His career in the national limelight lasted for just a few years, yet this sickly, southern white guy had nearly as much impact on American popular music as Elvis. He brought the blues to country music, and died alone, of an overdose of alcohol and pills, in the back seat of his Cadillac at the age of 29. The Hank Williams Museum in Montgomery displays that Cadillac, along with the contents of the suitcase he had with him, and the light blue suit he was wearing at the time of his death.
