When Hank Williams died on New Year's day in 1953, he left behind a legacy of honky tonk hits as well an extended family who would continue making music for decades to come. Williams' son, Hank Jr., daughter, Jett, and grandchildren Hank III, Hilary and Holly have all forged their own musical careers. Milo Miles reviews "Family Tradition: The Williams Family Legacy," an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame.
