Hank Williams is known the world over as the most influential singer/songwriter ever. Now, acclaimed performer/musician and Middle Tennessee native Jason Petty is bringing the authentic and insightful story of Hank Williams Sr. to life in Hank and My Honky Tonk Heroes for a special presentation at The Clark Center for the Performing Arts on March 10, 2013 at 2pm.
Jason Petty made a striking impression on New York’s Theatre District, starring in ‘Hank Williams: Lost Highway,’ which played to sold out audiences at the Little Shubert Theater. Audiences and critics alike were taken back by Petty’s amazing acting ability in his portrayal of Hank Williams. Petty won rave reviews from all the major critics, including the New York Times, Variety and Rolling Stone. The NY Post stated it best, “At times it seems as if Petty is not just offering an impersonation of Williams, but channeling his ghost.”
In Hank and My Honky Tonk Heroes, Petty gives a personal look at Williams growing up, how he became famous, who influenced the legendary singer songwriter and performers today who are influenced by Williams.
Backed by a four-piece band, the show is chock full of Hank’s hits from “Your Cheatin’ Heart” and “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,” to “Hey Good Lookin'” and “Lovesick Blues.” Not only will the great songs of Hank Williams Sr. be performed but the audience will also hear a selection of songs from some of Hank’s influences including “Will the Circle Be Unbroken,” “Wine Me Up,” “Midnight in Montgomery” and many more. Hank and My Honky Tonk Heroes will have audiences clapping their hands and stomping their feet!
