A Curious Tale of Fingerpickin’ Fury
Written by Chase Padgett & Jay Hopkins
Following up on his wildly successful performance of 6 Guitars in 2016, skilled musician and actor Chase Padgett returns with a riveting new show, Nashville Hurricane.
40 years ago, a mysterious acoustic guitarist appeared from nowhere, conquered the music industry, and vanished without a trace… until now.
Chase Padgett becomes a manager, a mother, a mentor, and the guitar prodigy himself as each one tells their side of the rise, demise, and resurrection of the best damn guitar player you’ve never heard of; the Nashville Hurricane.

During the course of this 75-minute one-man masterpiece, the audience learns about Henry Waltrip (the Nashville Hurricane) from his humble trailer park beginnings alongside his white trash mother, Brenda, to the crazy 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.”
