Jimmy Hall

Jimmy Hall first gained popularity as thelead vocalist, saxophonist, and harmonica player for the band Wet Willie, emerging from Mobile, Alabama. His unique brand of R&B-infused rock and roll and onstage swagger propelled the group’s signature song “Keep on Smilin” to the Top 10 on the Billboard singles chart in 1974. After seven albums with Capricorn Records, Wet Willie moved forward to Epic Records releasing the singles “Street Corner Serenade” and “Weekend,” both hitting the Top 40. Five other songs were released and placed in the Billboard Top 100. Following this significant success, the label approached Jimmy to record 2solo albums in the 80s. “I’m Happy That Love Has Found You” was the first single and led to his appearances on pop culture TV staples of the Rock era such as American BandstandThe Midnight SpecialSolid Gold and other musical variety series. His songs have been recorded by Gregg Allman, Jason Isbell, The Marshall Tucker Band, Blackberry Smoke, The Amazing Rhythm Aces, Johnny Russell, and many others. Additionally, Jimmy has been a vocalist and band leader for Hank Williams, Jr. since 1992. Over the years, Jimmy has been involved in other musical endeavors-The Nighthawks, BHLT (Betts, Hall, Leavell and Trucks), the Gregg Allman Band, and has appeared as a guest artist with multiple groups.
