Musician turned activist Kid Rock, speaking up for “Save Beechwood Hall,” appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to attract national attention to recent demolition activity around Hank Williams‘ historic country home, Tennessee’s Beechwood Hall.
“I’m sick of seeing history torn to the ground,” Kid Rock said. “There’s nothing more important in country music, if not American music, than Hank Williams, one of the greatest songwriters of all time. We hope to get this resolved in a good manner.”
Carlson responded by saying, “Tearing down Hank Williams’ house, an Antebellum house, would constitute not just an assault on the soul of country music, a distinctly American art form, it would be an attack on the country itself. Maybe we’ve had enough.”
A group of concerned Franklin, Tennessee, citizens has united in a grassroots movement to save Beechwood Hall, one of the most significant historic homes in Tennessee.
Built in 1856 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Beechwood Hall is now in imminent danger of being destroyed.
