(NASHVILLE, TN) - For years multitudes have praised the vocal styles of Michael English. His soulful, emotive voice wraps around a lyric and delivers a song like no one else can! That voice grabbed the attention of entertainment icon Cher recentlty and, like many celebrities in this day and time, took to Twitter to express her opinion.
On May 31, 2013, @Cher tweeted: “Just watched 'The Last Ride' story of Hank Williams' last trip. "Hey Good Lookin'" was the first song my mom taught me. Michael English did a genius version of "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" It says what we've ALL felt. Henry Thomas & Jesse James broke my heart.”

The man, the myth and the music come together when Williams travels from Alabama to a series of New Year’s shows in West Virginia and Ohio.

Featuring all-new versions of Hank Williams’ greatest songs, this emotional tale of hope and truth is one you’ll never forget.
