“Hank to Thank”, made in partnership with Sol Records and the Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation, is a live recording featuring country artist Dallas Moore Band with special guest and guitar legend, Jody Payne, from Willie Nelson and family. It was created to help raise funds for the foundation and increase awareness of the Cincinnati area’s rich musical heritage, including the infamous Herzog Studios, and King Records as well as promote the talents of the region today. The Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation was co-founded by Patti Collins, wife of Bootsy Collins, and 5 other prominent local music advocates in 2007.

“Hank to Thank” was recorded live in front of a sold out studio audience on Aug 30 2010 in the original location of the Herzog Studios at 811 Race Street and now home of the Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation to commemorate the 61st Anniversary of Hank Williams legendary recording sessions with the Pleasant Valley Boys that yielded eight of Hank Williams biggest hits, including Love Sick Blues, I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry, and others. the Herzog space is the last standing structure where Hank Williams recorded professionally. In addition to Hank Williams, Patti Page, Rosemary Clooney, and early King Records artists also recorded at Herzog Studio. Herzog’s operation and practices were used as a model for the first Nashville recording studios like Castle.

Sol Records is proud to release this historic recording in the spirit of Bud Herzog and Herzog studios, and Syd Nathan and King Records. Independent and proud of it.

The Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization that relies on the generous spirit and actions of its partners, donors, and contributors to realize its mission.
