The Larimer County GOP holds a fundraiser this Thursday to raise money to pay off a campaign finance fine imposed by Secretary of State Scott Gessler. Planned as a public event – it’s now a private affair – and closed off to the media. KUNC’s Brian Larson spoke to Colorado Statesman Publisher Jody Hope Strogoff about the decision and what message it sends.
Hank Williams III, also known as Hank 3, is the son of Hank Williams Jr., as well as the grandson of Hank Williams, considered to be one of the greatest country music performers of all time. Hank 3 got his start in music playing punk and metal, then went on to form bands with members of Pantera and The Jesus Lizard. Hank 3 made country albums, too, but had little use for mainstream Nashville's restrictive culture.
