12/9/2011 ( —  The long-running ‘Family Tradition: The Williams Family Legacy’ exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, Tenn., was celebrated this week with Hank Williams Jr. capping the near four-year residency with a powerful 90-minute acoustic set that raised $75,000 for the country music preservation organization.

Despite the exhibit’s pending closure, the son of the iconic Hank Williams promises much of the family’s memorabilia will remain archived at the museum. “I’m going to work with them and leave quite a few of these items here — where they should be,” Bocephus insists.
