Kid Rock is trying to save an antebellum home that once belonged to Hank Williams and is now in danger of demolition.
The singer Kid Rock is speaking out against the potential demolition of an antebellum home that was once owned by the late country music legend Hank Williams.
Fox News reported that Beechwood Hall was built in the 1850s and is located near Franklin, Tennessee. The home managed to survive the Civil War, and it would go on to be owned by Williams and later by the country music power couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.
The home, which sits on 268 acres, was bought last year by fund manager Larry Keele, but locals are sounding the alarm that they fear that he is planning to demolish it.
Kid Rock Sounds Off
Last night, Kid Rock sat down with Tucker Carlson to say that he is “sick of seeing history torn to the ground.”
“Whether it be in the form of monuments, statues and now something so important here in Nashville… where does it end?” he added.
Kid Rock went on to call on others to join the fight to ensure that Beechwood Hall will not be torn down.
“I think there’s going to be many, many people [who] will get on board,” he continued. “They can go to savebeechwood.org, and I think you will see a lot more country music stars, musicians, just great people in the community that want to preserve this for the next generation to come. Generations beyond that.”
“We hope to get this resolved in a good manner,” Kid Rock concluded. “But, if not, we can get some hillbilly stuff goin’ on too.”
