Petty, Martin bring country royalty to Playhouse

CROSSVILLE — The two biggest legends of country music will appear on the same stage at the same time when Obie award winner Jason Petty and Grammy nominee Carolyn Martin pay tribute to Hank Williams and Patsy Cline at Cumberland County Playhouse in Crossville on April 20 at 7:30 p.m.

Jason Petty made a striking impression on New York’s Theatre District, starring in Hank Williams: Lost Highway, which played to sold out audiences at the Little Shubert Theater. Petty won rave reviews from all the major critics, including the New York Times, Variety and Rolling Stone. The NY Post stated it best, “At times it seems as if Petty is not just offering an impersonation of Williams, but channeling his ghost.” Petty’s brilliant performance was honored with an Obie Award for Outstanding Actor.

A 2011 inductee into the Texas Western Swing Hall of Fame, Carolyn Martin is a Texas born, Nashville based swing singer. A former member of renowned western swing band The Time Jumpers, Carolyn garnered two Grammy nominations with the group and was also featured as part of the Time Jumpers DVD “Jumping Time,” which has appeared on more than 140 Public Television stations and has won two Emmy awards.

Jason Petty re-creates the role he has become famous for, while Carolyn Martin gives amazing performances of Patsy Cline’s biggest hits.  In a show like no other, Petty and Martin pay tribute to two of the most influential singers in country music history.  Over 20 of their chart-topping hits will be performed with a live band.  These are the two legends that audiences all around the world want to see; Hank Williams and Patsy Cline, as performed by two of the best entertainers in the country.
