"I Saw the Light" Film Illuminates a Country Music Legend

July 6, 2016

Nashville, TN

The Hank Williams Sr. biopic, "I Saw the Light," was officially released on DVD and Blu-ray yesterday from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The film, starring Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen, chronicles the prolific yet short-lived country singer's rise to fame and the tragic decline that came from his success. 

The fabled country-western singer is celebrated frequently on RFD-TV music programs: David Church recently aired a Williams tribute special on Midwest Country, and various members of Williams’ family have guest starred on shows like Pop! Goes the Country, The Porter Wagoner Show, Hee Haw, and The Marty Stuart Show, furthering his memory and carrying on his musical legacy.

In honor of the recent DVD release, RFD-TV and RURAL RADIO channel 147 on SiriusXM Radio are hosting an #ISawtheLight contest. One lucky viewer will receive a replica Hank Williams Sr. Stetson Hat along with three Blu-rays and one DVD of the film. You can enter until Tuesday, July 12th at 11:59 PM ET. A winner will be chosen next Wednesday. See below to enter the giveaway! 

If you haven't heard of the critically acclaimed film yet, check out these clips from the movie and an exclusive interview with Tom Hiddleston and the Executive Movie Producer, Rodney Crowell.
