Jason Petty pays tribute to Hank Williams

It is a trip down country music’s memory lane. In “Hank and My Honky Tonk Heroes,” Jason Petty pays tribute not only to Hank Williams and his influence on country music but also to the stars who influenced Williams and those whom Williams influenced.

This includes Jimmie Rodgers, Roy Acuff, Ernest Tubb, George Jones and more.

Petty, accompanied by an authentic four-piece country band, re-creates such Williams’ hits as: “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,” “Your Cheatin’ Heart,” “Hey Good Lookin’,” “Cold Cold Heart,” “Lovesick Blues” and “You Win Again,” among others.

Petty won rave reviews from all the major critics, including Variety and Rolling Stone.

Another sign of recognition for Petty’s brilliant performance of Hank Williams was being honored with an Obie Award for “Outstanding Actor.”

“Hank and My Honky Heroes” will perform in Three Stages, 10 College Parkway in Folsom on Thursday, March 7 at  7 p.m.; Friday, March 8 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.; Saturday, March 9 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Tickets are $29 to $39. They may be purchased online at threestages.net or from Three Stages ticket office at 916-608-6888 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and two hours before show time.

Petty, a veteran actor and singer has performed in theaters across the United States, Canada and Europe. Petty began his career 50 miles from the farm at Nashville’s Opryland music park. Performing four shows a day, seven days a week, Petty caught the attention of the director of an upcoming musical at the Ryman Auditorium. He was hand-picked for the starring role in “Hank Williams: Lost Highway” and it led him straight to the stage, where he has been ever since. Since that time, Petty appeared in National Tours of “Lost Highway” a musical revue authored by Petty.

His acting ability has afforded Petty roles in film, television and theater. His musicianship and song writing abilities have won him numerous performances on The Grand Ole Opry and the honor of being invited to perform with the most distinguished songwriters and producers at the exclusive Blue Bird Café in Nashville.
