The downtown space that once housed Herzog Studios — the facilities used to record legendary songs by the likes of Flatt and Scruggs, The Delmore Brothers and, most famously, Hank Williams (among many others) — is going into flashback mode Monday when it is once again used as a recording studio. The Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation — headquartered in that famous second-floor space at 811 Race St. — hosts “Hank To Thank,” a live recording/performance event to celebrate the 61st anniversary of the recording sessions that launched Hank Williams into the popular music stratosphere.

The event features a live recording session with locals the Dallas Moore Band (joined by Jody Payne, longtime Willie Nelson guitarist and former Cincinnati resident) laying down “Hank to Thank,” a tribute written by fellow local Country artist Danny Frazier. The musicians will also play other original songs and end with a handful of Hank covers. The sessions will be recorded for a CD/DVD release on Lawrenceburg-based SOL Records. Head to citybeat.com and click the banner with Hank’s mug to purchase tickets ($25 or three for $61). Only a few remain so giddyup. Proceeds go to the Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation, which spotlights Cincinnati’s vital role in popular music history.
