Last night my husband and I were in Vintage Vinyl and I found a case with a TON of Hank Snow CDs — dirt cheap. I was wondering, “What is up with all these Hank Snow CDs?” figuring someone donating or a Vintage Vinyl worker went to a garage sale and found them.
In my vast music collection I had no Hank Snow, so I figured I’d pick up one. They were only $1.99 each. I got one with three songs I love: “Movin’ On,” “Now and Then, There’s a Fool Such As I” and “I’ve been Everywhere.”
I got to the register and the cashier said, “We have a lot of Hank Snow!”
I said, “Yeah, what’s up with that?”
She said that a Hank Snow fan passed away and his family donated the CDs.
She also added that the man was such a fan that he was buried wearing a suit, previously owned by Hank Snow!
I thought that was the coolest, wildest thing! (As my late grandmother was buried wearing her Elvis Presley watch!)
