Kaw Liga


The community of Kowlagia is on Lake Martin in Alabama. It was named after the legendary aboriginal. A wooden statue was placed near the lake. The song "Kaw-Liga" was written by Hank Williams in a cabin that he owned by the lakeside. Possibly a distant cousin to Roy Acuff, Champ Butler and the Buddy Cole Trio were the first to release the song. Champ worked with the Les Brown and Paul Weston orchestras.

Hank Williams recorded "Kaw-Liga" (Hank Williams - Fred Rose) at his last recording session in Nashville in 1952. Chet Atkins is one of the backing musicians with Floyd Chance, Don Helms, Tommy Jackson, and Jack Shook . This is apparently the only hit by Hank that fades out. Issued posthumously in 1953 "Kaw-Liga" stayed at the top of the Country chart for fourteen weeks!
