Slumped in the back seat of a baby blue Cadillac speeding through a dark night, Hank Williams died New Year's Day, 1953.

He was 29 years old.

The country music legend was on his way to a concert in Canton, Ohio. Somewhere in West Virginia, Williams' young driver became worried about the lifeless body draped in a navy-blue overcoat. By then, it was too late.

Carried into an emergency room, Williams was pronounced dead on Jan. 1, 1953. His heart had given out.
