Bud Kennedy was nice enough to send this photo from country music legend Hank Thompson's funeral at Billy Bob's today.
Here's his short dispatch, sent at 2 p.m:
From Billy Bob's -- Hank Thompson's funeral is about to start -- they have his sequined suits on stage and I had to show somebody.
More to come ... Meanwhile, take a listen to a little Hank.
Here's an update from Bud as of 3:50 p.m.: "Mel Tillis is about to come onstage."
"One of Hank's friends pointed out that Hank played Billy Bob's right after it opened in 1981-- 'He opened this place up, and now it's shuttin' him down.' "
Lots of Nashville producers and backup singers here -- Willie Nelson called in from Hawaii.
Not one mention yet of Hannah Montana.
