Question to Jett Williams

Your dad died on a country road or a highway in WV. Has any effort been made to designate this place? Where exactly is it?

Thank you for sharing your father's legacy with so many who have long appreciated his great talent. So sorry that you didn't know him while he was alive, but so glad you know him in this way now.

By the way, it's Norah Jones, the name you couldn't recall. Norah, Bob Dylan and some other fine musicians not in the traditionally "country" genre have been deeply influenced by Hank Williams.
