There is only one Hank Williams and only one actor who can bring him to life, Jason Petty. Petty previously was the only actor to portray Hank Williams in New York City's hit off Broadway musical Lost Highway, where he won an Obie and multiple nominations for his performance. Now, he continues to capture Williams's silky warble and yodeling sob to a T, recreating hit songs such as "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry," "Your Cheatin' Heart," "Hey, Good Lookin'," "Kaw-Liga," "Cold Cold Heart," "Lovesick Blues," and many more. Petty and his authentic four-piece band will also pay tribute to stars that influenced Hank and those that Hank influenced such as Jimmie Rodgers, Roy Acuff, Ernest Tubb, the Carter Family, George Jones, Webb Pierce, and more.
