Hank Williams "Grave Tender" Visits Meridian

The official "Grave Tender" of music legend Hank Williams made a stop in the Queen City on Saturday.

Terry Faust stopped by the Jimmie Rodgers Museum in Highland Park on Saturday afternoon. He takes care of Williams gravesite and museum in Montgomery, Alabama. Back in September, Faust released an album titled "The Grave Tender." Faust was here on the anniversary of Williams last performance in Mississippi.

"The last thirteen years of me being around the museum, I was fortunate enough to get to know Hank's band members," Faust said. "I still have a great friendship with Hank's driver."

Williams performed his last show in Mississippi on December 8th, 1952.
