Direct from the historic stages of Nashville Tennessee comes this tribute show starring Jason Petty in a show that will instantly transform you back to the early 1950’s when Hank Williams Senior was the biggest name in country music anywhere. When Jason Petty first performed the role of Hank at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium in 1996, little did he imagine that some twenty years later he would still be portraying this legendary man in his own highly acclaimed show.As his research on Hank progressed, Petty met and became friends with Williams’ friends, family members, musicians, and fellow Grand Ole Opry stars. They took him into their confidence and shared intimate details of this legend’s life and career. From the good times to the hard times, Jason listened and began to understand this man like no other. Now he brings that intimate story to life in this one man tribute. Sit back, relax and let Jason Petty transform you back to another day and time, the days of Hank Williams.
