Her life is an evolving success story begun from the mystery of her childhood. Jett Williams lives as an important part of a musical family continuing to contribute to the unique legacy of country music. She was born Antha Belle Jett in Montgomery, AL on January 6th, 1953, the daughter of Bobbie Jett of Nashville, TN and Hank Williams, five days after her father Hank Williams' death on New Year's Eve. The mystery began for Jett when her custodial grandmother died. Just two weeks after Lillian Williams adopted Jett Lillian passed away, leaving this child an orphan once more. As a child Jett lived as a ward of the State of Alabama. In the early '80s, Jett began to research her family to get a better idea of where she came from. With the help of attorney Keith Adkinson (who she later married) and a lot of research she found out Hank Williams is her father. Since that time Jett has shared her talent and musical legacy with fans around the world. Jett and Keith relocated to Nashville, where she was produced by Owen Bradley. She made her professional singing debut on June 4th, 1989 in Evergreen, AL and began touring the world shortly thereafter backed by her dad’s old band, The Drifting Cowboys. Jett wrote her autobiography, Ain’t Nothing As Sweet As My Baby, in 1990 and made her debut on the Grand Ole Opry in December, 1993. She has performed at over 800 shows in the U.S., Japan, Holland, Germany, Switzerland, Norway, Italy, Spain, Canada, Scotland & France. Jett has made over 1,000 major media appearances, and was featured in outlets reaching over 100 million people in the last 6 months of 2008 alone, including National Public Radio, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, LA Times, BBC, NY Times, Country Weekly, Jett Williams/Biographic Highlights, Tennessean, Dallas Morning News, People Magazine, Associated Press, AARP, CMT, GAC/Master Series, Cashbox & Advance Publications.
