NASHVILLE, Tennessee (41NBC/WMGT) -- Studio41's Joey Stuckey went to Nashville to highlight an artist who is no stranger to Macon. Stuckey sat down with legend Jimmy Hall from the band Wet Willie to get the scoop on Hall's start in music and how middle Georgia was instrumental in boosting his career.
During the early 1970's, Jimmy Hall and his newly formed band, Wet Willie, was signed by Capricorn Records in Macon. Hall shared the studio and stage with artists such as The Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jeff Beck Group, Grand Funk Railroad, and a host of others while Wet Willie gained the reputation as one of the hardest working bands on the road. Now Hall is continuing the Southern musical tradition by fronting a new all-star Southern Rock band called Deep South. His soulful voice is richer than ever and you can be sure the best is still to come.
