The concert will be streamed globally to more than 200 countries, technically making it the biggest show of Williams’ nearly six-decade-long career. The event also marks the country star’s first-ever virtual event.
“I’m looking forward to returning to Jackson Hole and the legendary Million Dollar Cowboy Bar for the first time in over 40 years,” said Williams in a statement. “It will be a special stripped-down performance.” Established in 1937, the historic Million Dollar Cowboy Bar has long been regarded as one of the top honky-tonks in the country. Williams last played the hallowed venue in 1980.
According to a press release, the evening will span William’s storied career and feature many of his iconic hits.
“Hank’s show is a great example of the power of live-streaming,” said the founders of Sessions Live. “With our ability to market this show globally, an enormous audience around the world will be ‘in the room’ for this special experience. Through our interactive features, they will be able to connect with the artist in an exciting new way.”
Williams’ performance will mark his first since his induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame. His father, Hank Williams, was among the first inductees when the honor was established in 1961.
The prolific artist, who made his Grand Ole Opry debut at the age of 11, released his fifty-third studio album, It’s About Time in 2016. The record debuted at No. 15 on the Billboard 200 and No.2 on the Country Albums chart – his highest chart position since 1990.
