Kaleea: You are probably referring to Jason Petty. He has been touring with Lost Highway--the life of Hank Williams.    When, and if, you see him on stage you can almost believe he is HW. An amazing performance that gets standing ovations each night. I add, here, that the rest of the cast is truly mesmerizing and the mood is complete. This includes the character who sits at side stage and plays the part of the person who taught the young Hank blues and guitar----Teetop (spelling?)

I had the pleasure of interviewing Jason Petty for my Traditions Program on WFDU. A most charming man who, in the middle of our chat, grabbed his guitar and said--let's do a few Hank songs now. In truth, on stage you really think you are watching HW---as I said.
