JASON PETTY "Hank and My Honky Tonk Heroes"
Jason Petty's nostalgic look at Hank Williams and his influence on country music will amaze you! Petty, a veteran actor and singer, began portraying the country music legend in 1996 at the world-famous Ryman Auditorium in Nashville and now appears in national tours. He's received rave reviews from all major critics including "The New York Times," "Variety," and "Rolling Stone" and won the Obie Award for "Outstanding Actor" in his off-Broadway production. Petty, backed by a four-piece band, not only brings Hank and his music back to life in this insightful, energetic show, but he also explores country music lore. "The New York Post" stated, "At times it seems as if Petty is not just offering an impersonalization of Williams, but channeling his ghost." "The New York Times" added, "He does a remarkable job of rendering Williams' famous melodies with the silky warble and sob that recreate their touching simplicity." Petty also pays tribute to those who influenced Hank and those Hank influenced. Some of these artists include: Jimmie Rodgers, Roy Acuff, Ernest Tubb, The Carter Family, George Jones, Webb Pierce and more. HANK AND MY HONKY TONK HEROES is a MUST-SEE for all country music fans!
