To the delight of critics and fans alike, 2013 saw the discovery and release of previously unknown Hank Williams recordings. The "Garden Spot Programs, 1950" album was comprised of four 15-minute radio shows and shed new light on Williams’ recording career. It also demonstrated just how good a set of old transcription discs can sound when properly transferred, restored, and mastered. The release ended up winning the Best Historical GRAMMY in 2014. Now, the same team involved with "The Garden Spot Programs, 1950" are revisiting Williams’ "Health & Happiness" shows and the "Mother’s Best" recordings. Meet the team behind these historic projects; Hank Williams estate representatives Jett Williams and Kelly Zumwalt, Producer Cheryl Pawelski, and mastering engineer/audio restoration specialist Michael Graves.
