JASON PETTY'S 'THE SWINGIN' COWBOYS'- A TRIBUTE TO THE MUSIC OF THE GREAT AMERICAN WEST (FEATURING CAROLYN MARTIN AND HER WESTERN SWING BAND)
"I have directed my show many times since Jason has left...with a few damn fine 'Hanks' along the way...but no one has matched Jason's authenticity and sheer singing talent in the role, He is the best "Hank Williams" I have ever worked with...and likely the best we will ever see."---Randy Myler, creator, writer and director of "Lost Highway"
"Jason Petty is the consummate professional. He rocked Barter's audience, displaying his great talent as both an actor and a singer. Not only did he show that he can be a great Hank Williams, by far the best I've seen anywhere, but he totally captivates the audience through the songs he sings made famous by other artists. Jason and his band are authentic, honest and respectful to the originals without being imitative. Barter's audience, who know the heart and soul of country, bluegrass and folk music, found Jason Petty to be one of their own and adopted his show like it came from the mountains of Appalachia. That's saying a lot as these are the folks who come from the birthplace of country, folk and bluegrass music. I can say without hesitation that it was a joy to have Jason and his band on the stage of Barter Theatre."---Richard Rose, Producing Artistic Director, Barter Theatre, Abingdon, VA
"I produced Jason Petty as Hank Williams in the original "Hank Williams: Lost Highway" production off and on-Broadway in New York City. In my opinion (and I've seen many Hanks), no one will ever come close to bringing living, breathing life to the great Hank Williams than Jason Petty: either in this lifetime, or the one to come!" -- Dave Fishelson, producer, New York City
