“Country Royalty”  
Tribute to Hank Williams & Patsy Cline
Richmond, VA
Wednesday, March 25, 2020

Foreword . . . By David Davenport 

Having witnessed Jason Petty, the “Star of “Country Royalty,” perform for us the first time six years ago, I was an immediate fan.  I can’t say I was a big fan of Hank Williams or Country Music for that matter, but after Jason’s performance, I was sold on Hank and Country Music!  Jason delivered the most passionate and awe-inspiring performance I have ever seen, and I’ve seen many. I don’t quite know how or when it happened, but I was mesmerized by his every word and like a “deer in the headlights,” I couldn’t move! I was hooked in the moment waiting for his next word; I was transfixed on a story I had never heard before.  Was it his singing, his mastery of the guitar, his delivery, his acting?  I honestly can’t say exactly what it was, but I do know I wanted more! Larger than life, Jason, for that moment in time, was Hank Williams!  True to his words . . .  Jason puts it like this – “I treat the stage like my front porch, so let’s all gather ‘round and do some singing and storytelling and have a night of it.”  I couldn’t agree more!

Join us for an afternoon of “Country Royalty” as two of the largest legends of country music perform together on stage . . .  Hank Williams and Patsy Cline!  Jason Petty, star of “Hank Williams Lost Highway” and 2003 Obie Award winner, re-creates the role he has become famous for, while vocalist Gail Bliss, star of “Just a Closer Walk with Patsy Cline,” gives her jaw-dropping performance as Patsy! Between the two, they’ve performed on Broadway, the Grand Ole Opry, the Ryman Auditorium and many other great venues around the country!  “Country Royalty” features a live band as Jason and Gail perform over 20 of Hank and Patsy’s chart-topping hits like: I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry, Walkin’ After Midnight, Your Cheatin’ Heart, Crazy, Hey Good Lookin, I Fall To Pieces, Move it on Over, Leavin’ On Your Mind, Lost Highway, Sweet Dreams, and more!  

Before the matinee begins, travel to downtown Richmond for a delicious lunch at the popular Sine’s Irish Pub. Located in the heart of Richmond’s historic Shockoe Slip, Sine is modeled after the authentic “city pubs” in Ireland. Please choose from the classic Fish and Chips, Beer Can Chicken Sandwich (served with swiss, bacon and caramelized onions), Turkey or Black Bean Burger or Chicken Caesar Salad.  Includes non-alcoholic beverage and Bailey’s Irish Chocolate Cake or Banana Fosters Bread Pudding for dessert.

Spend a thrilling afternoon of song as they honor the legendary performers that helped make Country Music great!  Event to be held at the Glen Allen Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen – 2880 Mountain Road – Glen Allen, VA  23060
