Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Audrey Mae Sheppard (February 28, 1923-November 4, 1975), better known as Audrey Williams, was an American musician and the first wife of country music icon Hank Williams, mother of Hank Williams, Jr. and grandmother of Hank Williams III and Holly Williams. Audrey and Hank were married from December 15, 1944 until July 10, 1952 when their divorce was finalized. Sheppard was born in Pike County, Alabama. She met Hank Williams in 1943. At the age of 20, she was separated from her first husband and a single mother to their daughter, Lycretia. In a ceremony performed just ten days after her divorce became final (and before the expiration of the 60-day waiting period then required after a divorce), she and Hank were married before a Justice of the Peace at a gas station near Andalusia, Alabama in December 1944. With Audrey taking up the motivational role that had once been the exclusive preserve of Hank's mother Lilly, the newly-wedded couple visited Nashville intent on meeting songwriter and music publisher Fred Rose, one of the heads of Acuff-Rose Publishing.show more
