Hank III Starts New Tradition of Charity

Hank Williams III is known best for keeping the family traditions alive while forging new ones with his rebel ways. In what has become a tradition over the last few Hank III tours, one of the tour’s whistle stops will be for charity. The benefactor this time will be Happy Tails Humane, a charity Hank III has helped out before. Hank has also lent a hand to Homes For Our Troops a few times with charity concerts.

The concert goes down September 18th at The Loveless Barn in Nashville, with a charity motorcycle ride before the concert. Hank III has been an animal advocate for years, helping to find homes for stray dogs and cats, even pulling over his tour bus to check on loose animals. “Animals have been a real inspiration in my life, and helped me through some hard times.”

Here’s the particulars:

“Ride Happy is benefit for Happy Tales Humane! A no kill animal shelter in Franklin TN. Here’s what it’s all about: A scenic motorcycle ride through the beautiful countryside of middle Tennessee. Riders can register at Harley Davidson Cool Springs in Franklin from noon to 2:00 PM on the day of the ride. Destination is the one and only The Loveless Barn in Nashville. Best of all, Hank III will end the day of music with a concert at 6:00 PM. Tickets for the ride and concert are $40 per rider or $50 for a rider and passenger. Also available are concert only tickets for just $20.00.
