In her presentation, according to a press release, Williams will discuss the saga of her complicated life and the father she never met, but the man she came to know through his music. She will focus on the recently released 143 songs Hank Williams never recorded but sang on an early morning radio show which he hosted. Jett Williams was nominated for a Grammy as executive producer of this project.
She was born in Montgomery on Jan. 6, 1953, five days after the death of her father, Hank Williams. Jett was adopted not knowing her parents’ identities, but in 1980 she set out in search of her roots. Jett Williams’s autobiography, Ain’t Nothin’ As Sweet As My Baby, was published in 1990.
