Classic Nashville Roadshow
featuring Katie Deal and Jason Petty
October 5th - Thursday; 7:30pm
Mill Town Music Hall


Katie Deal grew up in the foothills of rural North Georgia and began her singing career at the ripe old age of eight. Her first big break was live on-air in front of a packed church, where she promptly forgot the words to "I Am a Promise". Well, she's never forgotten those words since and has let the lyrics, "I am a possibility" guide her career.


Jason Petty has 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. Audiences and critics alike were taken back by Petty's amazing acting ability in his portrayal of Hank Williams.
