Nashville Hurricane "A Curious Tale of Fingerpickin' Fury"

Forty years ago a mysterious acoustic guitarist appeared from nowhere, conquered the music industry, and vanished without atrace...until now. Fresh off the heels of his smash hit 6 Guitars, actor and musician Chase Padgett is earning rave reviews from critics and audiences alike as he transforms into four different characters during this production. Each with their own distinct voice, Padgett becomes a manager, a mother, a mentor, and the guitar prodigy himself. They tell their side of the rise, demise, and resurrection of the best darn guitar player you've never heard of, The Nashville Hurricane. In this one-man masterpiece the audience learns about Henry Waltrip (The Nashville Hurricane) from his humble trailer park beginnings alongside his mother, Brenda, to the memorable gigs on the road with his blues playing mentor, Tyrone. The stories and songs unfold into hilarious rants on love and music, a riveting tale involving the dark side of show biz, and blazing guitar work any audience is sure to rave about, such as the finale; a one-man acoustic Devil Went Down to Georgia.
