Knoxville, TN - The Andrew Johnson Motel



One account claimed that Country songwriter and performer extraordinaire Hank Williams (senior) stayed here the night of his accidental death at the age of 29. The drug and alcohol addled Williams were officially found in the back seat of his car, and had asphyxiated after over-medicating himself. Rumors have circulated, according to this source that Williams actually died in his room at the hotel, and the chauffer moved his body to the car and drove it to West Virginia, where it was found by police. The mournful singing of old Hank is said to be heard on lonely Tennessee nights in the vicinity of the hotel. It's unclear whether this building still has lodging.
