Hank and My Honky Tonk Heroes

Jason Petty Trio

 Grinder’s Switch Foundation Concert Series is proud to present acclaimed artist, Jason Petty in his award winning show, “Hank and My Honky Tonk Heroes”, for one night only on November 9, 2013 at East Hickman High School Auditorium, in Lyles, TN at 7pm.  It is fitting that Jason Petty is featured in this Concert Series because Hickman County can claim him as one of our own. He spent his summers with his grandmother and father in Primm Springs, TN and says he learned his love of music singing Gospel with his grandma and his admiration of Hank Williams by listening to the radio with his dad.  Jason still has family members in our area.

 Jason Petty wrote the show, “Hank and My Honky Tonk Heroes” which pays tribute to Hank Williams and gives us an unforgettable look at his influence on such artists as Jimmy Rodgers, Roy Acuff, Ernest Tubbs, George Jones and ... Elvis!  The show gives us an insightful, honest and respectful look at Country Music history and vividly takes us back to memory lane.

Hickman County can also lay claim to Mark Thomas Baczynski, the Fiddlist who accompanies Jason along with two other amazing musicians.  Mark lives in the county in the Duck River area with his family.  Mark’s musical abilities make him much sought after.  His solos have been called “breathtaking” and having “showboating sizzle”.

 Attending Jason Petty’s “Hank and My Honky Tonk Heroes” is like being at a big party with wonderful musical guests.  You will laugh, shed a tear, definitely tap your feet and sing along!
