At the peak of his career, he was acknowledged to be the greatest singer-songwriter in American history. After a meteoric rise to radio super-stardom in the late 1940ís, Hank Williams had made a train wreck of his life. Drugs, alcohol and a hair-triggered temper ended two marriages, ruined a host of friendships and made the tortured genius an untouchable in the music business. At the end of 1952, Hank Williams gathered what was left of his physical strength to make things right and began the long road back. He hired a local kid who didnít even own a radio, much less know who this legend was, to drive him to the gigs form Montgomery, AL. Hank Williams never got there. Somewhere on that last highway, the country music legend passed away on New Yearís Day, in 1953, in the back of his powder blue Cadillac, carrying only his guitar and a notebook full of unfinished songs. He was 29. Inspired by the mysterious final days of Hank Williamsí life, THE LAST RIDE is the story of that final drive through the bleak Appalachian countryside of 1950ís America.
