This nostalgic look at Hank Williams and his influence on country music is amazing! Jason Petty pays tribute to those who influenced Hank and those Hank influenced. Don’t miss Jason’s Obie Award winning performance as he brings Hank’s music back to life in this insightful and energetic show. Audiences and critics alike were taken back by Petty’s amazing acting ability in his portrayal of Hank Williams.
