In spite of his successful career, Hank Williams suffered from alcohol and drug abuse. That’s why he was dismissed from the Grand Ole Opry. Due to his addiction, Williams was not able to perform some of his duties as an artist. In 1953, he suddenly died while he is on the road to Canton, Ohio for a concert. He was just 29 at that time, a young and promising artist in his prime.
