"Midnight in Montgomery" is a song written by American country music singer-songwriter Alan Jackson and Don Sampson, and recorded by Jackson. Released in 1992 from Jackson's second album, Don't Rock the Jukebox.
This song was written about Hank Williams, who was from Montgomery, Alabama. It is a mid-tempo, largely acoustic ballad in the key of D minor. The singer describes a New Year's visit to a Montgomery grave (Williams died on New Year's), and encounters the ghost of Williams who thanks him for paying tribute before disappearing. The song also references several Williams hits, including "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry."
